Fairfax Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Holding Healthcare Professionals Responsible for Negligence & Wrongdoing

Although healthcare in the United States is highly advanced and recognized as among the best on the planet, the professionals who work in this field are human. They make mistakes, and in some cases, these mistakes cause serious injuries or even claim innocent lives. When doctors, nurses, surgeons, or other medical professionals provide substandard care, they can be held liable for the harm they cause. Such recourse exists under medical malpractice law.

To succeed in a medical malpractice action, a plaintiff (injured party or their representative) must prove that the defendant (allegedly at-fault healthcare professional) failed to act as a reasonably knowledgeable medical professional would have in similar circumstances. This can be tough to prove, as the medical field is technical, and some procedures have inherent risks. However, our Fairfax medical malpractice attorneys are up for the challenge.

“Unavoidable Risks” vs. Malpractice

An adverse outcome does not necessarily mean that malpractice was involved. Even if the most experienced medical professional exercises extreme caution and performs a procedure precisely by the book, there is no guarantee that it will have a positive outcome. These are the “unavoidable risks” associated with medical care.

Your attorney will need to prove that your injuries could have been avoided if the healthcare professional in question had provided a standard level of care. This typically requires an investigation and testimony by medical experts to establish the level of care that should have been provided and prove the defendant’s deviation from such care.
