What is medical malpractice?
The term, ‘medical malpractice,’ refers to situations in which a patient sustains injuries or a serious illness due to improper medical care by a doctor, nurse or another member of the medical staff that was responsible for your care. Problems that may be compensable include physical injuries and serious illnesses that are caused by the care that you received. We may be able to pursue compensation that could help pay medical bills, buy groceries or replace lost wages. Ask our staff for additional details.

Who can file a case?
When it comes to medical malpractice cases, there are some rules about who can file cases and who cannot. Additionally, each case is different, and the specific details of your situation will determine the success of your claim and the amount of compensation that you receive. However, not everyone that’s seen a doctor can file a suit. Here are a few basic things that must occur for a malpractice suit to move forward:
A doctor-patient relationship must have been established. You cannot file a medical malpractice case against a doctor that never agreed to treat you. The advice you heard from a doctor in an informal setting does not make them liable for your injuries.
The doctor must have been negligent. Not all medical procedures will work out as planned. To file a suit, you need to prove that the doctor was acting negligently and that the negligence caused your injuries.
The improper care led to specific problems. You must be able to prove that the medical care you received was the cause of any injury or serious illness developed thereafter.
