Frequently Asked Questions

We are here to answer any questions you may have about your case and we’ve also compiled a few common questions we receive about medical malpractice for you to get started.

Do I have a medical malpractice case if no doctor is involved?
Yes. Doctors just make up one field in a long list of who can cause you harm and who is to be held responsible for your injury. The list includes pharmacists, at home medical care assistants, and others that had a hand in your treatment. Mostly, the case will typically hinge on the “medical standard of care” and the breach of that standard: did someone hurt you. We will listen to you, talk to your family and take it from there.
What is medical negligence?
So if the medical community and others agree that a certain standard of care is the community norm and if that norm is breached or broken, then you could have a negligence case. For an example, if you have a headache and go to the emergency room, the community-agreed treatment may be some kind of medicine. If your doctor tells you that you need your appendix out instead of just prescribing this medicine, this is a breach of the standard of care. This sounds like a ridiculous example but many times such ridiculous and horrible things happen. Lawsuits are so common in the medical community because things happen that are beyond what seems reasonable.
When do I need to call an attorney?
If you suffered an injury at the hands of a medical professional or if you lost a loved one due to negligence or carelessness of a doctor, nurse, or another party, you should contact a lawyer right away. If you cannot call, a family member should call for you, or you can wait until you have recovered enough to discuss your situation. As with any injury claim, time is of the essence, so don’t wait until it is too late to file your claim, gather the necessary evidence, build a persuasive case on your behalf.
If you or a loved one has been harmed in any way due to negligence while under a doctor’s care, you should not have to suffer the physical and financial toll that these accidents can take.
