Medical Malpractice Mistakes Can be Deadly

We all make mistakes but when a doctor or other healthcare professional makes a mistake the results can be devastating even deadly and in some but not all cases the tragedy may be the result of medical malpractice. So here are the questions to ask before you consider taking legal action.

Did you or a loved one have a professional relationship with the healthcare provider? In other words did the healthcare provider owe you a duty of care? A duty of care arises when a doctor renders medical care to a patient. Next did the professional fall below or breach that standard of care? Doctors must exercise the level of care that a reasonably prudent person in their line of work would exercise. The specifics depend on the practice area.

And did you or your loved one suffer an injury or damages and is there a provable connection between your injury and that breach? If the answer to these questions is yes you may have a claim for medical malpractice but this requires a careful review by an attorney as well as a medical professional who practices in the same or similar area as the doctor in question.

If you or a loved one is the victim of medical malpractice call the law offices of Diana Santa Maria or visit santamarialaw.net.
