Medical Malpractice

The practitioner here will deal with claims that question the standard of care rendered by a
physician, dentist, optometrist, chiropractor, or an employee of a hospital. An attorney
practicing in this area must understand not only legal principles, but also must be
knowledgeable as to the appropriate standard of care to be exercised in a variety of health care professions and settings. Representative issues can include those such as: Did the medical professional fail to diagnose or misdiagnose the patient’s condition resulting in injuries? Did the surgeon perform a procedure improperly resulting in injury to the patient? Did the nursing staff follow orders issued by the physician? The attorney’s task is to simplify and focus the issues, and to make a case involving complex medical facts, issues and analysis as simple and straightforward as possible.
