Fighting for the Compensation to Help You Heal

We put a lot of trust in our doctors, nurses, dentists, and other medical professionals. We expect that their education, training, and experience will contribute to their ability to keep us safe and healthy. In a society with some of the most accomplished medical professionals and the most revolutionary technologies, it is a shame that medical malpractice continues to harm innocent people. Mistakes do happen, but when professionals fail to meet a reasonable standard of care, they should be held accountable for their negligence.

With medical malpractice laws in place, you have the right to pursue legal action against any medical professional who failed to act the way a reasonably knowledgeable doctor would. Whether you are given the wrong diagnosis, prescribed a harmful drug, or injured by a botched surgery, you may be eligible for compensation. Ashcraft & Gerel can represent you in your efforts to restore justice.


Proving Medical Malpractice

Just because your medical treatment had an unfavorable outcome does not necessarily mean you have grounds for a lawsuit. In healthcare, there are unavoidable risks and no guarantees. That said, evidence of significant negligence that caused preventable harm is certainly grounds for legal action.

Common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Mistreatment
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Misreading a patient’s medical history
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Unnecessary surgeries

To successfully prove medical malpractice, you will have to first show that there was a valid doctor-patient relationship between you and the accused. From there, you’ll have to prove that the medical professional was, in fact, negligent and that the professional’s misconduct or negligence directly caused your injury that would have otherwise been avoided.
