Is It Really Malpractice?

Not every failed surgical procedure qualifies as medical malpractice. Patients can have a bad outcome even if the surgeon and medical staff did everything right. Conversely, medical professionals can make errors that do not cause serious or permanent harm to the patient.

In surgical malpractice cases, we must prove that the doctors, nurses and other health care providers failed to follow the accepted standard of care and, because of that failure, the patient suffered harm.

Before we can file a claim, a surgeon in the same specialty as the one who allegedly injured you must review the medical records and determine whether malpractice occurred. If the medical reviewer finds evidence of malpractice, we will move forward with a claim for compensation.
