We Fight for You!
When you or a family member is injured at the hands of a person or organization that you sought out medical treatment from, you can become very emotional and you need someone in your corner. But no matter how upset you may be the first thing you will need to do is determine if you have a medical malpractice case.
To have a case you’ll need to prove the following:
- A medical professional made a mistake while treating you
- You were injured by that mistake
Being unhappy with your medical treatment is generally not enough to prove harm. If for example you had a plastic surgeon perform breast enhancement surgery and you are unhappy with the results you likely did not suffer any harm. However if you contracted an infection as a result of procedure that resulted in hospitalization or additional surgery then you may have a case.
The other issue is demonstrating that the medical professional made an error. Errors are defined as an act or failure to act that is outside the standard of care generally practiced by other medical professionals. This becomes the battle of the expert witnesses.
It can get into a very grey area and insurance companies will fight hard because verdicts can run into enormous settlements. For this reason most medical malpractice cases take a long time. You will need a Davie law firm who has the resources and resolve to see the case through.
