MEDICAL MALPRACTICE IS NEGLIGENCE

QUEENS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY

When medical practitioners make mistakes, they’ll stop at nothing to cover them up.  Fast action is crucial before records are destroyed and altered.  It’s best that medical records are requested, if possible before the doctors are aware they are going to be sued.  Some mistakes are obvious such a leaving a surgical tool inside a patient or operating on the wrong body part, but other times a thorough investigation into the recognized standard of care must be performed.  If the doctor does not have a very good reason why he didn’t use the standard practice, and something terrible happens to the patient – we are here to help.

Medical Malpractice, otherwise known as medical negligence is an especially common occurrence. It occurs when a doctor, nurse or other health professional fails to provide their patient with thorough, professional care, which can lead to an array of different consequences, such as substantial loss of income, personal injury and in some extreme cases, death.

Doctors, nurses and other health care providers are expected to adhere to certain standards of practice and when they fail to do so, they can be held accountable if their patient somehow suffers as a result of their actions. Depending on the nature of the malpractice, the healthcare provider can be brought to court.
A medical malpractice attorney should be fully knowledgeable of the medical malpractice laws in their state and how to apply them appropriately. They must be able to prove that the medical professional violated or deviated from the appropriate standard of care and that the injuries sustained by the patient are a direct result of such negligence.
