All doctors and healthcare professionals dedicate their careers to the health and well-being of their patients. But sometimes, mistakes happen opening the door for medical malpractice — when a hospital, doctor or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes injury to a patient. The negligence might be the result of errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or health management.
At the office of Law Offices of Lau & Nicolello, our team of skilled attorneys will carefully review the particulars of a person’s injury to ensure that all elements of a solid medical malpractice claim are present. For situations that warrant it, we will litigate lawsuits based on the negligent conduct of all medical professionals involved, including their employers, such as hospitals, health care clinics and medical corporations.
Here are some examples of medical negligence that can lead to a malpractice suit:
To be considered medical malpractice under the law, claims must meet the three criteria: there’s been a violation of the established standard of care; the injury was caused by the negligence which led to injury; and lastly, the injury resulted in significant personal damage — such as disability, loss of income, unusual pain, suffering and hardship, or significant past and future medical bills.
