When you seek out medical care at a hospital or with a doctor, you have every right and reasonable expectation to believe that you will receive a certain standard of care. Most times that is the case, however, at other times for a variety of reasons, that care falls short, either through a misdiagnosis, undertaking the wrong course of treatment, or engaging in practices that can make a health situation worse, and in some cases, lead to death.
Medical malpractice cases can be very complicated
If you believe you are the victim of substandard medical care due to a hospital’s negligence or a doctor’s negligence, you have the right to be compensated for your pain and suffering, and other related damages. You will need to retain a skilled and experienced medical malpractice attorney who has worked on similar malpractice cases to give you the best chance at winning your case.
In general, medical malpractice cases are extremely complicated and can take months or even years to resolve. Intensive and extensive reviews of medical records are common, and the use of medical expert witnesses to support your position takes place more often than not.
