Legal Solutions Following A Breach Of Standard Of Care By A Doctor Or Health Care Professional
Doctors and specialists are legally held to an established standard of care when treating patients. A doctor is expected to provide the care that a reasonable health care professional should do in a given situation, in that geographical area. They must follow certain steps and processes when providing care to mitigate the risk of human error and complications.
Examples of breaching the standard of care include:
- Pharmaceutical errors and improper dosage
- Surgical errors and surgical tools or materials left in the body
- Improper administration of anesthesia
- Failure to monitor tests and vital signs leading to complications, birth injuries and other trauma
- Neglect of the patient
We will evaluate your situation and work with professionals to determine if doctors and the hospital failed to adhere to the reasonable standard of care. If this has occurred, our lawyers will provide a clear understanding of the value of your claim, as well as your legal options for pursuing it.
