When illness or injury forces you to see a physician or to go to the hospital, you can generally be assured that the doctor’s years of experience and training will result in excellent treatment of your ailment. But physicians, nurses and other health care providers are human; they can, and do, make mistakes.
When these mistakes lead to injury, disability or other damages, it may be necessary to pursue a medical malpractice claim to hold the health care provider and the facility that employed him or her accountable for the harm you suffered. Due to the complexity of these matters — medical records must be examined in great detail, expert witnesses should be retained and extensive documentation needs to be collected — it is imperative to turn to a firm that has the experienced attorneys and financial resources to successfully resolve medical negligence cases.
