Doctors and hospitals are highly trained and dedicated professionals who truly want to help others. However, their profession is very complex. Proper treatment of any malady is critical. Any mistake can be deadly.
Every mistake made by a healthcare professional is not malpractice. Many risks are known and accepted by the doctor and the patient. However, negligence leading to injury is not accepted or to be assumed by the patient and the patient has the right to recover from the injury.
Each profession has a standard of care that all professionals in that occupation must meet. This applies to engineers, accountants, lawyers, stockbrokers and many others.
If you believe you or a loved one have suffered from the negligence of a care provider or other professional, we will be glad to discuss the case with you. At our firm, the first consultation for a personal injury case is free. For more information call 1 (800) 201-9987 or (434) 332-5155 or fill out a consultation form here.
