Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable
If a doctor or other medical professional has made an error that resulted in an injury, that person should be held accountable. With the help of an experienced lawyer, you may be able to file a claim to get compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses.
Medical malpractice claims are often considered the most challenging of all personal injury claims. This is due in part to the complex laws that dictate how these claims must be handled. Showing that a patient suffered an injury is not sufficient to win a case. To win a case, there must be sufficient proof that the doctor or other medical professional who allegedly made the error deviated from the medical standard of care. Typically, this requires testimony from one or more medical experts. Furthermore, it must be proven that the deviation from the standard of care caused the injury, and that the injury was not a result of the condition being treated.
