A Law Firm Representing the Rights of Employees and the Victims of Wrongful Injury

Medical Negligence

Medical negligence is an act or omission by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of care.  Health care providers -- doctors, nurses, hospitals -- make mistakes, the same as everyone else.  In law, mistakes are sometimes referred to as "negligence."  Bringing a lawsuit to recover for those damages is a reasonable step and one with which our firm has helped other people. 

A negligent act is not one where one person intentionally sets out to injure another but where a mistake is made, such as when another driver runs a stop sign and hits you as you are in the cross walk or when a doctor misses the signs of a tumor on your x-ray until it has spread to other organs.  When a healthcare provider's negligence causes a patient serious injury or leads to the patient's death, the health care provider is responsible to compensate the patient for that injury, the same a everyone else whose negligence causes someone else to be injured.
