When you hire a medical professional to help you, you have the right to expect that the service you receive meets the appropriate standard of care. If it is not met, you may have the right to pursue compensation for any damage caused.
Has a Medical Professional Caused Injury to You or Your Family Member?
At Carpey Law, we know how to handle medical negligence cases. We work with skilled experts to assist you in achieving positive results and compensation for your injuries.
When you hire a medical malpractice lawyer at a Philadelphia law firm, he or she must know what is needed to prove liability and damages in a malpractice case. The four main elements required as proof in a standard negligence case are:
- Breach of Duty / Breach of Standard of Care
Each of these elements is vital to the success of a medical malpractice lawsuit. There are many common forms of medical malpractice, including misdiagnoses, failure to diagnose, surgical errors, medication errors, hospital infections, incorrect prescriptions, and delays in treatment. If a medical professional has failed to provide the Standard of Care there is a chance that a malpractice has occurred. In such a case, it is a good idea to speak with a medical malpractice attorney.
