Brandon Medical Malpractice Attorneys

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, injury or 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 something definitely 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 dangerous drugs, 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.
