Nothing is more egregious than to suffer a serious wrongful injury or have a loved one die at the hands of someone you trusted to care for your health. Medical malpractice or medical negligence occurs when a health care professional fails to provide you with the standard of care that other similarly trained professions would provide and it results in an injury to you or the death of a family member. Health care professionals are doctors, specialists, hospital personnel, dentists, counselors, hospital workers, and medical personnel.
There are specific time limits to make a claim. So you should never delay in seeking a legal opinion that can guide you and allow you to preserve potentially critical evidence. In addition your lawyer will want to secure medical records and document the potential incident of negligence. Most people believe that if you signed an informed consent you cannot pursue a claim. This may not be true if there was a deviation from the standard of care.
It is crucial that you immediately contact a lawyer knowledgeable in the field of medical malpractice if you feel that there has been some breech in the standard of care.
