Mobile Medical Malpractice Attorney
For those who are seriously sick or injured, we trust that our doctor, nurse or medical provider will give us the highest degree of care when it comes to treatment. This of course doesn’t mean that those in the medical profession will always be successful in curing what ail us, but it does mean that these people who we trust with our health will not play dice with our lives by taking unnecessary risks that may result in more harm to our health.
When this does occur, it is referred to as medical malpractice and it is illegal. According to Alabama legal statutes, medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider; doctor, nurse, and, or other health care provider performs their medical duties in an unskilled or improper manner which is inconsistent with nationally recognized standards of practice, putting their patient at risk. This means that if an accident, injury, missed diagnosis, aggravation of an illness, or death occurs as the result of negligence in the performance of a medical provider’s duties, malpractice may have occurred.
Because of the complexity of medicine, it can be difficult to know at first if malpractice occurred during the treatment of a patient, and even harder to prove in court.
