Can I sue if I was injured by a medical mistake?

Doctors are supposed to heal the sick, or at least “do no harm.” Unfortunately, it is all too common for patients to suffer an illness or injury caused by a medical mistake on the part of doctors or hospital staff. In these situations, it is important to know that you may be entitled to compensation through the legal process.

Many people may know or suspect that something went wrong during their hospital visit, or wonder why their doctor failed to make a crucial diagnosis. If you are wondering whether you have a medical malpractice case, it is essential for you to consult with an experienced and knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney, such as the attorneys at Joyce & Reyes.

Medical malpractice cases can be extremely complex. There are important time limits that may apply, and proving that your injury resulted from a medical error generally requires expert testimony. For these reasons, it is important to consult with an attorney who is well-versed in these matters. At Joyce & Reyes, we offer a free initial consultation, and we do not charge a fee unless we are successful in obtaining compensation for you.
