Medical Malpractice – Negligence Injury Claims Lawyer
When doctors, nurses or other health care providers act negligently, serious harm can come to their patients. Those actions (or failures to act) that result in harm to or even the death of a patient are called medical malpractice. Health care providers could be liable for a personal injury claim. As with other personal injury cases, the expertise of a trusted attorney is invaluable in these instances. The standards and regulations related to medical malpractice are complex. As a medical malpractice lawyer, attorney Dwayne L. Brown has the knowledge needed to investigate your claim and fight the big insurance companies that work hard to keep from paying medical malpractice claims.
Medical malpractice is a complicated area of personal injury law and one that is often misunderstood by the public. Many medical procedures have risks involved, and just because someone has a negative outcome from a medical procedure does not necessarily constitute medical malpractice. For a medical professional to be liable for an injury under medical malpractice law, there must be proven negligence. They must have acted or not acted in a manner that is outside the norm for the procedure or another medical professional in their position, causing harm to their patient.
