How do I know if I have a medical malpractice case?

Unfortunately, sometimes the professionals we entrust with promoting our health commit wrongful acts that cause further injury. If a doctor, nurse or other medical professional was negligent in providing care, and that negligence resulted in injury, then you may have a medical malpractice case.

Medical professionals are held to a high standard of care. If it can be proven that a professional did not meet this standard of care, and injury was directly caused by the mistake, medical malpractice is present. If the doctor made a mistake but no injury occurred, then there is no malpractice case.

Often, it is difficult to prove that malpractice occurred and that it led to an injury. Attorneys who work in medical malpractice often call on expert witnesses to evaluate the case and to testify in court.

The best way to find out whether or not you have a medical malpractice case is to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney. To learn more, please contact Joyce & Reyes for a free consultation.
