A medical malpractice lawyer can review the specific facts of your situation, tell you whether you have a valid case and represent you in court.


What Is Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare worker is negligent, and that negligence causes injury or death.

To be a claim that can be pursued as a malpractice, several conditions must exist. Our lawyers can explain these conditions in more detail, but there may be a medical malpractice case if:
  • The healthcare professional failed to adhere to the standard of care
  • The patient was injured or died as a result of that mistake
The Standard of Care is generally accepted method of treating similar patients with the same condition in a particular part of the country.

For example, the standard of care for treating a 40-year-old man with lung cancer might not be the same as the standard of care for treating a 90-year-old with lung cancer.

The standard of care for treating a 60-year-old woman with heart disease in Texas might not be the same as the standard of care for treating a 60-year-old woman with heart disease in New York. Your medical malpractice lawyer can explain the standard of care as it applies to your specific situation.

Medical malpractice lawsuits are complicated and can take years to resolve. When you hire medical malpractice lawyers to represent you, they can focus on your lawsuit while you focus on your own health.

  • Gather and review the evidence in your case

  • Prepare and file and sue a lawsuit against the doctor, hospital and/or other healthcare providers involved in your case, if necessary

The Benefits of Hiring Medical Malpractice Lawyers

There are a number of benefits to hiring medical malpractice lawyers, rather than attempting to sue the healthcare professionals on your own.

Medical malpractice lawyers will be knowledgeable about malpractice.

Our medical malpractice lawyer will also understand your medical condition and the injuries you've suffered. He or she will know the long-term effects of the medical mistake, and have a good understanding of the cost of medical care and treatment.

This knowledge helps ensure you get a financial settlement that accurately compensates you for your injury.

The right medical malpractice lawyers have the experience to determine whether you have a strong or weak case. They'll be able to recommend when it makes sense to settle or if you should take your case to trial.

If you have come to this website, you or a loved one may be suffering from a negligent act or medical malpractice at the hands of your medical provider.

Our Law Firm has been helping victims of accidents for two decades. If you need help, call us day or night at 1.800.862.1260.

Depending on the case and the facts at hand we can assist you with the following:

An attorney will determine if you have a case which we believe we can assist you and/or your family.  We have the ability to sit down and discuss and review your case with an experienced general practice physician, with experience in most areas of medicine. He can review your medical records to determine if there is a probable case and, if so, then recommend that a physician specialist review the records as well. Following our consulting expert initial opinion that negligence has occurred, we may be willing to move forward and send your records to a physician specialist in the field of medical practice at issue in your particular case. The physician specialist will then determine if standards of care were followed, or if there were deviations from the appropriate standards of care.


Medical Malpractice

Medical negligence or Medical Malpractice occurs when a physician or healthcare provider either fails to do something that should have been done or does something that should not have been done with a resulting injury or death.

Doctors and other healthcare providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients.

While a simple mistake may not rise the a level that constitutes negligence, a death or injury caused by the failure to meet minimum standards of care or the failure to diagnose an easily detectable illness may be malpractice.

Negligence by a medical professional could include an error in a diagnosis, treatment, or illness management. If you need help call us day or night at 1.800.862.1260.

If medical negligence results in injury to a patient, a case could arise against the doctor if his or her actions deviated from generally accepted standards of practice; against the hospital for improper care, such as problems with medications, sanitation or nursing care; or against local, state or federal agencies that operate hospital facilities.

A medical practitioner may also be legally liable if a patient does not give "informed consent" to a medical procedure that results in harm to the patient, even if the procedure is performed properly.

  • Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
