Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Landover
Seeking Justice for Injured Patients
Although doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other medical professionals undergo extensive training and are held to high standards, we still see instances of medical malpractice. Healthcare professionals who fail to deliver the quality of care expected of them can be held liable for any injuries or harm they cause.
If you believe you may have a malpractice claim against a medical professional, we encourage you to discuss your situation with our team during a free consultation. We can assess the claim and determine how to proceed. With the help of our Landover medical malpractice attorneys, you may be able to recover significant compensation for the damages you have suffered.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Broadly speaking, medical malpractice is any action (or inaction) that does not meet the acceptable standard of care in the profession. Medical malpractice can occur in the course of treatment, diagnosis, medication prescription, surgery, or any other type of medical process.
Medical malpractice law is designed to help individuals who have been injured by a medical professional’s misconduct or negligence. The injured victim has the right to file a claim and seek compensation for the damages they have suffered.
Unavoidable Risks & Medical Malpractice Claims
Just because someone experiences a negative outcome after a medical procedure does not mean that they have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. It is important to remember that all forms of health care have unavoidable risks. Even when a doctor exercises sincere and significant caution, there is always the possibility that the outcome will not meet expectations.
Only if a bad outcome could have been avoided with reasonable care will you have a valid malpractice claim. All medical professionals should exercise reasonable care – and any failure to do so is inexcusable. Our medical malpractice lawyers in Landover can see to it that your voice is heard and that any negligent party is held accountable.
