Have a Health Care-Related Injury? Consider a Medical Malpractice Lawyer
A bodily injury lawyer who specializes in health care law is known as a medical malpractice lawyer. If your injury was caused by the negligence or wrong action of a health care professional, you should look for a lawyer or law firm specializing in health care malpractice.
Here are some examples of medical errors that can become medical malpractice cases if they result in serious injury:
- A doctor misdiagnoses or fails to diagnose an illness.
- A care provider gives you the wrong medication or an improper dosage of medication.
- A medical professional does not properly consider your medical history before a procedure.
A malpractice negligence lawyer will file a claim against a doctor’s or hospital’s insurance provider. The insurance company may agree to pay you and settle your case before it goes to trial. If they do not settle, the claim may become a formal lawsuit.
