Filing Claims After Surgeries Gone Wrong
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider’s actions cause undue harm to a patient under their care. Negligence can be proven when the doctor or nurse performs below the standard that is acceptable in the field of medicine. To support your claim, it must be proven that the doctor strayed from standard medical practices while administering care. As part of their due diligence as a medical provider, a doctor must take precautions and use diligence and reasonable care. They cannot be held legally responsible for decisions made or honest errors that take place during the course of treatment. If you are uncertain about the viability of your case, our medical malpractice attorneys will assist you with sorting out the details and establishing your claim.
