Common Questions
Surgical and Medical Malpractice, and Lawsuits for the Negligence, Carelessness, Errors and Mistakes Doctors, Surgeons, Hospitals and other Healthcare Providers.

The term "medical malpractice" refers to professional negligence on the part of a medical or health care professional. Medical malpractice, or professional negligence, occurs when the acts or omissions (failure to act) of a doctor, surgeon, or other medical or health care professional fall below the accepted standard of care and the patient suffers personal injury or wrongful death as a result.

To win a medical malpractice case it must be proved that the doctor, surgeon or other health care provider breached the accepted standard of care under the circumstances and damages were caused as a result. All three elements (breach of duty, causation, and damages) must be proved.

Generally, doctors, surgeons, and other health care providers have professional liability insurance that pays both for their defense (attorney and expert witness fees as well as investigation and litigation costs) and any amount that the must pay, either by settlement agreement or verdict after trial.

No. If we take your case, we will advance the costs of pursuing your medical malpractice claim.

Why is the date of the injury so important?

There are time limits within a lawsuit must be filed. The time limitations are provided by state statutes called "statutes of limitation." Every claim for medical malpractice must be filed within the limitations period or be forever barred. If a medical malpractice lawsuit or wrongful death lawsuit is not filed before the time limit set by the statute of limitations runs out, then the lawsuit is barred and the claim for medical malpractice will be lost forever.
