Personal injury or wrongful death can occur as a result of negligence on the part of a hospital, nursing home, doctor, nurse, dentist, chiropractor, pathologist or some other type of health care provider. Not only do these cases arise from improper diagnoses, treatment or surgery, they can occur when a medical device is defective or because of negligence on the part of a pharmaceutical company. In the instance of outpatient care, the most common form of medical malpractice is misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose.
In consideration of legal action in a medical malpractice suit there are many factors to consider. Did a relationship with the medical professional/establishment exist? Was the level of care or procedure below industry standard? Is there quantifiable harm to the patient?
While these cases can be complex in nature, our experienced attorneys have knowledge of medical malpractice laws and comprehensive knowledge of science and the science of medicine.
