The Valley’s Premier Medical Malpractice Firm
When it comes to medical care, patients expect physicians and other medical personnel to provide them with the utmost level of attention. The reasons for this are abundantly clear, as patients seeking medical care must necessarily place a significant degree of trust in their attending medical professionals.
When a medical professional breaches his or her trust with a patient, and illness or injury results, the patient may have a medical malpractice claim. However, legal actions for medical malpractice can be quite difficult to pursue.
The experienced personal injury team at JacksonWhite can help you receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Medical professionals of all types must maintain the standard of care that is expected of them. In general terms, this standard requires them to treat patients how other members of their profession would treat patients in like circumstances.
A failure to maintain this standard can give rise to a medical malpractice action if it causes the patient to sustain an injury.
Where a member of the medical profession fails to diagnose, or makes an improper diagnosis, the patient may have a medical malpractice claim. Likewise, a medical malpractice claim may exist where a medical professional makes a prescription or surgical error.
In addition to these general types of medical malpractice, medical malpractice claims can succeed where a failure to meet medical standards of care cause a birth injury.
Proving Medical Malpractice
Sustaining injury is not by itself enough to successfully prove medical malpractice. Rather, the injury must be directly traced back to a medical professional’s deviation from the acceptable standard of care. Proving this in a court of law can be quite complicated, and expert testimony is always required, making these cases extremely expensive.
If, in fact, a medical professional breached his or her duty of care to the patient, and this breach resulted in injury or illness, then the patient deserves to be compensated. If you have been injured due to a medical professionals negligence do not hesitate to contact the injury team at JacksonWhite today.
