Medical Malpractice Representation

When we see a physician, we put our life and health in their hands, and trust them to perform their duties with the utmost care. When a doctor doesn’t live up to this trust and performs his or her duties carelessly, the results for the patient can be disastrous. At the Salazar Law Firm, our medical malpractice attorneys work to get patients the compensation they deserve for their medical bills, lost wages, and the pain and suffering that result from medical negligence.

Most of the time, your doctor will take care of you by doing the best and most professional job possible. But sometimes they make mistakes. If a physician is negligent or puts you or someone you know at risk, it can be catastrophic for all involved.

Unfortunately this type of scenario is happening more and more often across America. A recent study performed by Johns Hopkins showed that medical malpractice is the third greatest cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancer.

There are many different types of medical malpractice that can happen to patients. Some of them include: anesthesia errors, like choosing the wrong medicine; emergency room errors, like misdiagnosing an illness; medical device errors, like using improper or defective equipment; ordering an improper test, postoperative negligence, and more. Our medical malpractice attorneys will help you find out if you have a case, and guide you through every bit of the legal process.

With all of the different possibilities for medical malpractice, you may ask yourself how you would know if you have a medical malpractice case, or where to start if you know you have a case. If you are thinking about filing a lawsuit for medical malpractice, we highly recommend finding an experienced and qualified medical malpractice attorney to help you navigate the process and ensure that you have a winning case. Remember that there are often statutes of limitations that govern how long a person can wait before filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Factors that are involved in proving a case of medical malpractice include the following:

The relationship between the physician and patient. When you are fighting for a medical malpractice case, you must be able to prove that you had a relationship with the doctor involved in the suit. The patient must have hired the physician and the physician must have agreed to provide medical services to the patient. Medical professionals are only liable to be sued for malpractice that occurred within the scope of their employment.

The physician’s duty of care. Doctors are required to practice medicine in a way that is consistent with the accepted standards within the medical community. This means that doctors are legally obliged to treat their patients in the same manner that another medical professional in the same field and situation would do so.

A physician’s breach of duty. In order to be considered negligent, a doctor must have violated the duty of care that is owed to their patients described above. In order for physician to have violated their duty of care to their patients, they must have failed to act in a way that another medical professional would in a similar scenario.

Causation between a physician’s actions and the patient’s injury. Besides negligence, a patient must also prove that there is causation in order for their claim to be valid. A patient must show, through medical records, other documents, and expert witness testimony, that there is a causal relationship between the negligence of a physician and their own injury.

Damages caused by the malpractice. The injury or other problem for the patient that was caused by a physician must have incurred other damages of an economic or non-economic variety. This means that a doctor cannot be liable if the injury to the patient did not cause additional medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering. If your medical professional is negligent and injures you or a loved one, our medical malpractice attorneys can help you file a lawsuit.
