Having a medical condition can be frightening. Patients getting care deserve to be confident and comforted that their medical professional is providing the proper care. Medical professionals are held to the same standard. When doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, health care facilities, or pharmaceutical companies cause suffering or death through negligence, carelessness, misdiagnosis, or misjudgment, they should be held accountable. If you or a loved one has been in this position and suffered because of it, our firm is ready to protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve. To discuss your case with an experienced attorney, contact Stathis & Leonardis.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a type of case involving negligence that occurs when a health care provider fails to meet the medical standard of care. In the medical profession, the medical standard of care is based on the training and expertise of similar professionals and the choices they would make in the same situations. A case’s merit often comes down to the fact that the defendant acted in a way that most competent professionals wouldn’t have avoided.
What are some examples of medical malpractice?

The effects of these cases can be devastating. If you believe that you were treated with negligence, you may need to take legal action to protect yourself and your future.
How do I know if I have a medical malpractice case?
Medical malpractice cases are complicated. It is vital to retain an attorney that has both the legal and medical knowledge to assess your case’s merit and guide you through your options. Though situations like the ones above are serious, they do not always constitute a medical malpractice case. Mistakes happen. Knowing the difference between a mistake and negligence is complicated. Talking to an attorney is best. Medical malpractice cases are based on a uniform standard of care. If no other competent doctor or health care professional would have made the mistake that caused your injury, it may call for a medical malpractice lawsuit. If your case is valid, you may be entitled to a range of damages for further medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. The Statute of Limitation limits you to take action within two years of the accident.
