As parents, we teach our children that it’s only human to make mistake because that’s how we learn right from wrong. These mistakes are small and often a good lesson can be learned from them. We learn and then move on in most cases. But that isn’t the case with medical professionals like doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, surgeons or even a medical facility that you are entrusting your care to. Medical professionals take an oath to do no harm and provide the best care possible for you. When you or your loved one are in a doctor’s care it is expected, according to the standards set forth by their oath and their specialty, that they will provide the best standard of care possible for you. When that doesn’t happen and something goes wrong, there are some things you can do. In most cases, we know that these errors were not intentional, but medical mistakes can be costly, not to mention life-threatening. At The Law Offices of John E. Mufson, we understand how challenging cases of medical malpractice can be, and that’s why we are here to fight for your rights.
Why should I expect from a medical malpractice attorney?
One of the reasons to hire a medical malpractice lawyer in Delray Beach is because cases of this type are so difficult to prove. When first considering a medical negligence claim, you’ll want to find an attorney with many years of experience. Malpractice suits can be complicated and proving a doctor’s negligence isn’t that easy. At The Law Offices of John E. Mufson, we have worked tirelessly for our clients in Delray Beach and throughout Florida, on a wide range of medical negligence issues and have the track record to prove it. There are four steps that malpractice attorneys will generally follow to prove your case:
•They must prove that the medical professional had a “duty of care” to the patient. Most often this entails establishing that you were a patient under the medical professional’s care.
•The medical malpractice attorney must prove that there was a “breach of duty” to the patient when they made a serious error in your care.
•The attorney will then need to prove that there is a causal connection to be made from the breach of duty to your injury, i.e. a medical scan that should have been ordered was not and your injury went undetected and worsened.
•Finally, the medical malpractice attorney must prove that you suffered serious injuries due to the medical professional’s error while in their care. We may find witnesses to corroborate your claim.
What Kinds of Cases Require A Medical Malpractice Attorney?
