Providing aggressive representation for victims of medical malpractice
Medical malpractice is a form of negligence where an injury results from the failure of a medical professional (doctor, nurse, medical technician, psychiatrist) or medical facility (hospital, clinic, healthcare center) to exercise adequate care, skill or diligence in performing a duty. A doctor has an obligation to use care and diligence in diagnosing your illness so that the proper treatment can be recommended.
In order to properly diagnose a condition, a doctor should ask about a patient’s medical history as well as his or her family’s medical history. The determination of whether a duty of care is met depends upon the accepted practices of other professionals or facilities in the same field and geographical area. In the case of a doctor who is a medical specialist, the standard of care is determined by the standard of good medical practice in that specialty within the community. To navigate the complex issue of medical malpractice, you need experienced litigators who will aggressively represent your rights.
