What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or other health care provider makes an error in judgment or is negligent in such a way that results in further or prolonged injury to his or her patient. However, most medical procedures, such as surgery, contain an element of risk. Because of this inherent risk, not all medical procedures resulting in adverse outcomes mean that there is a medical malpractice claim. However, if you think that you have been the victim of medical malpractice, contact Anderson Law today to receive a free consultation regarding your damages and possible remedies. Sometimes, the only remedy may be filing a complaint with the Department of Health.
What Are The Elements of a Medical Malpractice Case?
In order to prove medical malpractice, it must be proven that the doctor or health care provider was negligent in some way, or that the provider deviated from standard medical procedure in a way that harmed the patient. This is much easier to prove if you have already received a second opinion confirming what you believe. Otherwise, proving this often requires expensive expert witnesses, such as nationally renowned doctors. If you feel that you have been injured by medical malpractice, contact Anderson Law Today.
