How Do You Know If You Have A Medical Malpractice Case?
Whether or not the doctor or healthcare provider made an obvious error, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim if their negligence led to your injury. Your lawyer will review your case and determine whether the provider failed to provide you with an appropriate level of care.
We will then see if we can appropriately link your injury to the actions of the healthcare provider. If there is a connection, you may choose to pursue a medical malpractice claim against the provider.
Some of the cases we have helped with include:
- The family of a woman who died as a result of improper medication given by an emergency room physician.
