Medical negligence, or malpractice, occurs when a physician, hospital, or other health care provider fails to properly treat a medical condition and the patient suffers serious physical harm, permanent disability, or untimely death. Medical negligence cases can be some of the most expensive and complex cases to prepare and litigate. Many times, instead of admitting their mistakes, providers ignore the harm they have caused and have their insurance companies hire large law firms to zealously defend them.
Health care providers are not liable simply because a medical situation resulted in a poor outcome. Rather, a physician or hospital must have acted, or failed to act, in a manner that was below the standard of care for professionals in their community and in their field or specialty. The Law Office of Joseph S. Walsh has fostered relationships with medical professionals to assist in review of your medical case and opine whether there was a breach of the standard of care. If we determine you have a case, we will fight to hold the provider accountable and fight for your right to be fairly compensated for your injuries.
