Patients entering any medical facility or preparing for surgery have an expectation that the medical professionals who are responsible for their care will follow medical and ethical guidelines to maximize their recovery and minimize their pain, suffering, and permanent injury. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is common and errors in medical treatment have been characterized as being the third most common cause of death in the United States.
Not all deaths or injuries from medical care are malpractice. Medical science is not exact and patients can be injured or killed even after receiving proper medical care. But if the practitioners are negligent, patients have a right to compensation for their injuries or wrongful death. Along with doctors, other medical personnel can be held liable including surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and therapists. If you or a loved one have suffered what you believe was medical malpractice, you need competent legal representation from Dino Law to help you sort out the complex medical issues and represent you in court or settlements.
