Alabama, Georgia, and Washington, D.C. families can turn to us for medical malpractice representation
Many cases of medical malpractice leave clearly evident damage to a patient, such as when a surgical mistake results in the wrong body part being operated on, or if a LASIK surgery accident worsens a patient's vision.
Other cases, however, may require more diligent application of a patient's right to fair treatment, such as when a diagnosing error occurs but is not discovered for several months or even years. In other cases, a medical-related product may be involved as well as the actions of a care provider; this may apply with cases of defective medical equipment or of insufficient warning about the side effects of a dangerous drug.
Understanding what defines medical malpractice
Medical malpractice does not occur every time medical treatment is unsuccessful. Doctors do not guarantee the services they provide. However, a doctor is required to have the necessary knowledge, skill and experience to perform the services in question. Malpractice arises from a professional's misconduct or failure to use adequate levels of care, skill or diligence in the performance of their duties, such as being infected from a non-sterile needle injury.
That's why medical malpractice lawsuits are best handled by legal professionals, like those of Slocumb Law Firm. Our experienced lawyers can help individuals and families in medical malpractice lawsuits get the compensation they deserve for the damages suffered because of the negligence of a health care provider.
