Not all bad medical care is medical malpractice. Not all bad medical results are the result of medical malpractice. Often, patients are so sick that even the best medical care cannot save them. But, whether you are rich or poor, sick or healthy, all human beings in this great country are entitled to proper medical care. Proper medical care is dependent upon the circumstances. Thus, even a cancer patient is entitled to be treated by a doctor and/or a hospital and/or a nurse exercising “good and accepted medical practice in the community”. Failure of a health care professional to provide such care, if that neglect results in injury, is called medical malpractice.
Medical Malpractice cases are typically difficult, expensive to bring (for the lawyer) and complex. Thus, it is only the significant injury (that usually means a permanent injury) that warrants a medical malpractice lawsuit.
If a doctor or any health care provider departs from good and accepted practice, the damage can be horrible. Horrific bodily injuries and death are common when a doctor fails to meet the standard of care. We handle many such cases each year and our record is impressive. These cases are usually won in the discovery stage when the complex medical issues are examined in great detail.
We even obtained a great verdict for a woman who died because of the negligence of two ambulance drivers. So call us if you suspect you might have a case. Serious injuries are generally required but it is almost impossible to tell if you have a case until we examine the medical records. We will obtain the records and do all the investigation for you.
