I Was Injured By My Doctor, Is He at Fault?

During one time or another in our lives, we may need to see a doctor or hospital for treatment. While most of our visits will be successful and without incident, you may be harmed and wonder if the doctor caused your injury.

Whether you believe it was the doctor or nurse who contributed to your injury, the question that you need answered is whether or not they deviated from the accepted standard of care. This standard of care insists that everyone gets good and accepted medical care.

If a doctor fails to give good and accepted medical care, they may be held responsible in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Their failure to give you the standard of care you deserve resulted in you suffering harm.

The one thing you need to remember is that some medical procedures come with risk. For example, it is acceptable that after gallbladder surgery you may not be able to eat the same foods you did before. This is an acceptable result of this surgery and does not fall within you being harmed significantly. However, if during the same surgery the doctor or nurse surgically cut in the wrong place and left you paralyzed that would be defined as not within the good and accepted medical care you were supposed to receive.

We work with you and medical experts to show how your doctor or other healthcare provider caused your injuries and those injuries resulted in you suffering significant and/or permanent harm.
