Medical Malpractice Services

A bad result while being treated by a medical professional is not necessarily malpractice. The plaintiff must prove that a physician “deviated from the acceptable standard of care”.

Medical Standard of Care

Examples of a treatment or diagnose that may deviate from the acceptable medical standard of care are:

  • Lack of Informed Consent
  • Misdiagnosis or Delay in Diagnosis
  • Negligent Treatment or Delay in Treatment


Secondly, that deviation must have “caused” injury to the patient. There must be a “reasonable medical probability” that the deviation caused harm or what is known as “damages” which include:

  • Pain, Suffering & Emotional Distress; Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Disability; Economic Loss; Medical Bills
  • Injuries to a Fetus/Preconception Injuries; Loss of Fetus
  • Wrongful Death; Wrongful Birth

Standard of Care for Specialists

Specialists are often held to a higher standard of care. These include doctors such as:

  • Neurologists
  • Radiologists
  • Internal Medicine Physicians
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Cardiologists

Damages to Recover

Some damages you might be able to recover are:

  • Pain and Suffering – Financial and emotional impacts on your well-being due to medical malpractice
  • Earnings Lost – Income lost during missed work days
  • Lost Earning Capacity – Inability to participate in certain physical activities
  • Medical Bills – Bills incurred due to medical malpractice

Generally speaking, you need a serious permanent injury caused by malpractice to have a viable case. Rarely does a malpractice case settle before trial is about to commence.

Medical malpractice litigation is highly complex and difficult litigation. Do not hire an inexperienced unknowledgeable attorney. If our firm is not the best firm to handle your particular matter, we will refer you to a firm that is best suited for your case.
