When someone is severely injured or dies in this type of situation, it is often because there was inaction or inappropriate action on behalf of the medical professional. It is only natural to wonder if you have a medical malpractice case in these types of situations.
The Personal injury lawyers at Glotzer & Kobren understand how traumatic and devastating these types of injuries can be. The damages can be extensive, and insurance companies will fight to pay as little as possible for the costs related to the injury. Our injury lawyers know how to work with insurance companies and we will fight equally as hard to ensure they compensate you for all of your damages.
Determining If You Have a Medical Malpractice Case
Medical malpractice falls under the category of personal injury law. You will need a skilled medical malpractice lawyer who has dealt with these types of claims before. Then, your attorney will need to prove that the physician or medical facility caused your injuries and is liable for the damages.
First, your attorney will need to prove that the medical facility or professional made an error in your care. Then, they must prove that you were harmed or a death occurred because of that error.
In these types of cases, the courts will look at the expected standard of care. That means that they will look at what is acceptable for a facility or professional in the situation. For example, the care for a healthy 30-year old is not the same as a newborn.
Not only will a mistake have to have occurred, but you must prove that the mistake injured you. So, if you do not have an injury that occurred and you are just dissatisfied with the level of care you are receiving, you may not have a medical malpractice claim.
