Injured by Your Doctor?

Don't Assume Your Doctor Did Everything Possible

Medical doctors are among the most extensively educated and rigorously trained professionals around, but just like everyone else they do make mistakes. When they do, the results can be absolutely tragic for the patient and the patient's family. When you or a loved one has been injured or has suffered a worsening of condition at the hands of a doctor, there is one important question which you must raise: should the doctor have prevented the injury? People in your situation commonly assume that the doctor took every possible precaution to safeguard their health, but this is often a major mistake.

You have every right to suspect your doctor of medical malpractice Even the most dedicated and well-intentioned medical professionals are known to make errors, whether through fatigue, stress or simple carelessness. If you refrain from asking the right questions about the situation, you could be giving up your right to claim fair compensation for the losses you have sustained. A careful investigation of the case may reveal that the doctor did everything that could be done to avoid causing you to suffer, but if the reverse is true, you would want to know, wouldn't you? Your life may never be the same again, and you should not hesitate to take action to protect your personal interests.

How We Prove a Medical Malpractice Case

In order to successfully sue for malpractice, it is necessary to demonstrate that the doctor's actions constituted a breach of the duty of care, and that this breach caused the patient to suffer some type of injury. If another doctor in the same position would have acted differently or could have reasonably been expected to avoid causing the injury, the patient is most likely entitled to recover damages. For example, many cases of Erb's palsy are the result of birth injuries which are entirely avoidable. This type of injury is often the result of the doctor's use of excessive force in pulling the baby out of the birth canal, which can cause the nerves in the neck and upper shoulder to stretch or tear. By establishing that the doctor's mistakes or oversight caused the injury, an attorney from Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. may be able to help you win a settlement or jury verdict.

There are many proven strategies for proving a medical malpractice claim, and with more than 70 years of combined experience, our attorneys know how to get results in this type of case. Evidence to support your claim may be found through an exhaustive study of the medical records relating to the condition or by interviewing any witnesses who were present at the time of the incident. In some cases it is useful to hire the services of medical experts who can provide testimony to support the claim that the doctor's actions were negligent. The first step in the case is to contact an attorney for help. We are ready to meet with you for a free consultation to review your situation and determine whether you have grounds for legal action. If you do, we can help you take immediate action in your case. Call or visit us today!
