Orange County Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Involving an Attorney after a Medical Injury or Error
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor fails to provide a standard level of medical care to a patient. Any professional in the health care profession may commit medical malpractice at virtually any point during patient care, including in diagnosis, treatment, surgery, or postoperative care. Due to the often technical and serious nature of these cases, it is important that you consider involving an attorney.
An Orange County medical malpractice attorney at Accident Lawyers can help by first reviewing your case and working to determine whether you have grounds for a claim in the first place. If we can establish that you were in fact subjected to substandard care, we will then file a medical malpractice claim against the doctor or medical facility responsible for your injuries. In doing this, we will work toward resolving your case efficiently and effectively in order to help you recover the highest amount of financial compensation possible.
Negligence may be described as a failure to act with proper caution or care under the circumstances. In the medical field, this may include any act or failure to act that constitutes substandard medical care. If a doctor or other health care professional does something that constitutes a deviation from accepted medical standards, and this result in injury to a patient, that health care professional may be held accountable for this conduct. Most acts of medical negligence involve an omission of some kind, such as forgetting to note down a patient's symptom on his or her chart or failing to fully review a patient's medical history and symptoms before making a diagnosis. Depending on the particular act and the illness or injury the patient is suffering from, negligence may have disastrous results. It may lead to serious injury or even the death of a patient.
