Healthcare providers can make serious mistakes resulting in medical malpractice. Diseases are misdiagnosed, lab results are misread, surgeries or other medical procedures end with horrific outcomes and patients are ignored or allowed to fall through the cracks.
Medicine is not an exact science. Physicians, nurses and all other medical providers must follow the prevailing standard of care, which requires actions or inactions to be in line with what reasonably competent medical professions would do. For a medical malpractice case, failure to conform or follow the standard of care must have caused or contributed to cause your or your loved one’s injury or death.
Unfortunately medical malpractice happens more often than you think and is often not reported. Many people suffer silently after their surgeries leave them maimed or injured. Many times victims of malpractice are hesitant to bring a lawsuit against their healthcare provider because they believe it was not the doctor or nurses’ fault.
