Identifying the cause of a medical error with legal support

People have a reasonable expectation that they will feel better after going to the doctor or undergoing a surgical operation. In many cases, that is exactly what happens. However, despite all the advancements in medicine, there are times when treatment does not go as planned.

Unfortunately, medical care is not perfect; there is some risk with even the most routine procedures. That is why there is a standard of care that doctors and nurses must provide to patients in order to minimize risks and complications.

If you have suffered an injury, illness, infection or other negative condition as a result of medical care, it may be the result of an unavoidable risk that could not be prevented despite a reasonable level of care. But this is not always the case. Many patients' lives and health are put in jeopardy because of negligent or reckless behavior on the part of those responsible for providing care.

In order to determine what led to a negative outcome, it is crucial to examine the care you received, or in some cases, did not receive. This can be very complicated and typically requires input from other people in the medical field who thoroughly understand what should or should not happen in cases similar to yours.

Medical professionals can have valuable insight and knowledge when looking into your care and may find that a doctor or nurse made an unreasonable or dangerous medical decision that compromised your health. This testimony is often the crux of a medical malpractice claim.

If you are in this situation, it is very likely that you and your family are extraordinarily upset, frustrated and confused. It is only natural to want to regain some sense control over the situation. One way to do this is to fight for the answers you deserve by contacting the attorneys at Mitchell & Shapiro. We have the resources and experience to investigate your case and can pursue a legal claim and compensation on your behalf if appropriate.
