Demand the standard of care you deserve in Washington, D.C.

In a past article, you read about a dentist who had been charged with homicide following the death of a patient in his care. Her dental surgery went horribly wrong, leaving her in critical condition and eventually dying during the procedure. Her health history suggested that she shouldn't have been exposed to so much stress by pulling multiple teeth and keeping her under anesthesia, yet the doctor continued.

Reading this, you may be relating some of what went wrong in her situation to yours. Medical malpractice happens fairly often, and while it doesn't always lead to injuries or deaths, it's important that doctors take the time to understand and correct their mistakes. Not doing so can lead to other patient injuries down the line.

When you're hurt, you need to know if you have the right to claim. Medical malpractice cases can be complicated; you need to prove that the medical care you received wasn't up to the standard of care expected in Washington, D.C.

First, you need to prove who is responsible for your injuries. Should you hold only the doctor liable, or is the hospital also liable for your injuries? During this process, you'll need evidence to show what went wrong and what should have happened but didn't.

Next, you need to explain how the medical mistake has caused you pain or injuries. The relation between the doctor's errors and your physical and emotional state needs to be made, showing why the defense's explanations shouldn't be accepted by the court.
