At The Neighbors Law Firm, we hold medical providers in high regard. Most medical providers are highly skilled professionals who will never be under scrutiny for medical mishaps. Medical providers, like everyone else in society, however, must abide by certain standards. In the medical - legal world, these principles are called "standards of care." They are the fundamentals that every provider should follow when practicing medicine.
Essentially, if a provider doesn't follow a standard of care, chances are they have committed negligence. Standards of care differ from specialty to specialty. They are much like the rules of the road; if a driver is negligent, and hits you, causing you personal injury or damage, you expect him to pay for his negligent actions. If a medical provider, whether it be a doctor, nurse, or facility personnel, is negligent, nothing less should be expected. If your doctor, hospital or pharmacist made a mistake, and that mistake caused you serious injury, you may have been the victim of medical malpractice.
Consider the Following Questions:
Have you answered "yes" to any of these questions? If so, you may have a legitimate claim. We believe that legitimate medical malpractice claims help maintain the high quality of medical care that a patient expects. People tend to be more careful when they are held accountable for their actions.
