Medical malpractice lawsuits are possible in negligence cases

Medical malpractice litigation stems from very serious problems that adversely impact patients and their family members. When the issue was something that could have been prevented, the person who was harmed might opt to seek compensation for his or her injuries. This has a few purposes — holding the doctor accountable, providing the financial means to get medical care for the injury and possibly call the issue to light so others won't suffer the same way.

If you have been injured by medical malpractice, which also includes medical negligence, you might want to explore the possibility of seeking compensation. This is a process that can get very complicated, depending on the circumstances involved. We know that you might be concerned about how difficult the process is going to be.

We can't promise you that everything is going to be easy. Typically, we review the case to determine exactly what happened. We will have to compare the care that you received to the type of care that you should have expected. The duty of care is something that has to be carefully considered, because it isn't universal.

The duty of care varies according to what is going on, what information is available and the training and experience of the doctor. For example, you would expect top-notch care for breast cancer from an oncologist who works at a state-of-the-art cancer center, but you wouldn't expect that same care from a rural family practitioner who hasn't treated, diagnosed or dealt with many breast cancer patients.

We know this is a lot to think about, but we are here to help you along the way. We can explain the points that stand out in your case and discuss your options to enable you to make an informed decision about how to move forward.
