Malpractice happens when a physician or hospital provides substandard treatment or fails to properly diagnose a patient’s medical condition, and this causes their condition to worsen or results in a new injury. Sometimes medical malpractice is caused by a doctor or hospital's lack thoroughness, such as failing to give the necessary test or performing an incomplete evaluation. However, simply because there was a poor result does not mean there was malpractice. On occasion, medical malpractice is obvious, but in the majority of cases there are complex medical issues, which need to be thoroughly evaluated.
It is important to consult with an experienced and qualified law firm. Many times medical malpractice is not recognized by an attorney because they lack the expertise or fail to consult with the appropriate medical experts.Proving Your Case
At Rosenbaum & Associates we believe it is critical to evaluate your claim with the best specialists in the field. Often several different medical experts are retained in order to evaluate and substantiate your case. Two elements must be established to pursue a malpractice claim: First, we must prove the doctor's treatment fell below the accepted standard of care. Next we need to show the mistake caused additional damage or increased the risk for future harm.
There are no attorney's fees until we make a recovery. If we accept your medical malpractice case, then we take the risk. You do not pay any fees or costs out of pocket. We are only reimbursed if we make a recovery, this is typically referred to as contingent fee agreement.
