If you believe you have been mistreated by a doctor or nurse, you may have a case for medical malpractice. Essentially, malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to perform to the standards of his or her duties and causes harm to a patient. A malpractice claim can result from a variety of situations that are caused by a doctor or nurse’s negligence.
Medical professionals are held to high standards of protocol. They must complete years of training through which they learn proper methods of treatment to mitigate health and safety risks to patients. Furthermore, doctors and nurses are also held to the same standards as all people, in that they should adhere to a reasonable duty to avoid endangering others. When any person fails to do so, they are considered negligent.
When a doctor-patient relationship has been established, the doctor becomes responsible for your safe treatment while under his or her care. The first factor that must be proven in a medical malpractice claim is that the medical professional was negligent in his or her treatment or diagnosis. This means that he or she failed to practice reasonable skill or attention, and his or her procedures deviated from the accepted standard of care.
Furthermore, it must be determined that the negligence of the physician directly or indirectly caused your injury or illness. This can sometimes be difficult to prove, as most claimants were already sick or injured. However, our firm can help analyze your case for evidence and expert testimony to build a strong case that a doctor’s negligence led to your damages.
If you have suffered injury or illness because of a negligent medical professional, you deserve to take action. You should not have to shoulder any further financial burdens because a doctor or nurse failed to do his or her job.
