Brandon Medical Malpractice Attorney
What is medical malpractice?
Most of us are not medically trained and trust our doctors and other medical
personnel to provide standard care on our behalf. The majority of health
care providers do a very professional job. There are, however, instances
when medical staffs are negligent in their duties resulting in illness,
wrongful death. When this occurs, it is known as medical malpractice. Unfortunately,
people frequently feel that there is nothing that they can do about it,
especially if they have signed a waiver at the start of their treatment.
At Boohoff Law, P.A., we want you to know that the truth is that frequently
can be done about it. The first thing that should be done is to get in touch
with a knowledgeable and experienced injury attorney in Brandon, who may
be of great service to you or a loved one. Next, if you feel you have
been a victim of medical malpractice, don't talk to anyone but your
attorney about the situation. Sometimes statements that you make can be
used against you in a court of law. Gather together all evidence and documentation
you have regarding what occurred. Items such as prescriptions, written
statements on your condition, the diagnosis and any treatments should be saved.

Commonly, there are four important parts to a medical malpractice case.
It must be shown that a relationship existed between you and the health
care provider for your care and treatment. It must be proven that you
were harmed, that the provider was the cause of the harm and that the
level of treatment that you received was not up to accepted medical standards.
Along with your information, an aggressive investigation can reveal important
evidence of use in your case.
Medical malpractice can take many forms. The negligent use of
injuries to the brain, unnecessary surgery, severe infections, adverse reactions to pharmaceuticals
or even misdiagnosis, can all be causes or effects of negligence by a
health care provider. Medical malpractice can cause pain and suffering
and financial hardships that extend well into the future. Looking for
a lawyer for an injury case in Brandon? Our firm feels it is important
that those that harm a patient must be held responsible for their actions
and that you receive compensation for the harm that was done.
