Medical Malpractice FAQs
Medical malpractice is negligent treatment by medical providers, such as a doctor, hospital, nurse, chiropractor, therapist, or other medical practitioner. If a medical practitioner fails to act in accordance with accepted standards of practice in the diagnosis or treatment of a condition, they may be responsible for all damages that result, including pain and suffering, medical bills, loss of wages, or a death.
Our lawyers know how difficult it is in the wake of a serious injury-causing accident and the serious expenses you will already be facing. We are therefore proud to work on a contingency fee agreement, which means that you only pay if we are able to recover for you.
From the first consultation to the very end of your case, we will front all of the expenses—including man hours we put in and fees of experts that we consult. We are only paid if we win your case, and our payment comes from the total recovery that we make–not directly out of your own pocket.
Quite often, the presence of a medical practice case can only be learned through consultation with an attorney experienced in handling medical malpractice matters.
The responsible medical provider, and any other organization such as a medical corporation or hospital for which that individual worked.
Generally, the only way to make such a determination is for review by an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who in turn will consult with medical experts in the field.
