Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Washington, DC
Representation for Victims Injured by Health Care Providers
Amazing innovations in medical science and technology have allowed health care practitioners to treat ailments for which there were once no cures, to alleviate pain that decreases a person's quality of life, and to help patients live healthier and more productive lives. While these achievements have revolutionized the ways in which society heals the sick and injured, the fact remains that no amount of technology will eliminate the potential for human error, mistakes, and negligence.
When it comes to seeking medical treatment, patients have every right to believe that their physician and all attending health care providers will uphold a certain standard of care. They have the right to believe that they will be treated with the skills and knowledge of any reasonable medical professional and they have the right to hold medical professionals liable when they commit acts of negligence. Although there will always be a certain level of infallibility and a certain margin of error in all medical procedures and treatment, there is simply no excuse for carelessness.
Medical Malpractice Claims & Victims' Rights
If you or your loved one has been harmed by a medical professional who committed an act of negligence or failed to uphold their duty to provide reasonable care, then you may be eligible to recover your damages by filing a medical malpractice claim. Similar to personal injury claims, medical malpractice claims will focus on establishing clear and convincing evidence that a medical professional breached their duty - or failed to meet the accepted standards of their profession - when providing inadequate or negligent care. Medical malpractice claims can be pursued for a variety of situations, including some of the most common:
- Birth injuries, including injuries to mothers and newborns
- Diagnostic errors, including misdiagnoses and failures to diagnose
- Emergency room errors
- Surgical errors
- Medication and prescription errors
- Medical malpractice resulting in wrongful death
