We can agree that medical malpractice including failure to diagnose, and nursing home neglect occurs more often than it should. When a healthcare provider departs from the “standard of care” and treatment of a patient, medical malpractice occurs. The “standard of care” is defined as what a reasonably careful medical provider would or would not have done under the same or similar circumstances. The question is, was the provider negligent? If you suspect that you or a loved one has been treated carelessly by a healthcare provider (doctor, hospital, dentist etc) and suffered injury as a result, it is important that you consult with me to determine your rights and the best course of action.
