Medical Malpractice Can Have Life-Changing Consequences
We put our lives and well-being in the hands of medical professionals on a regular basis. The Hippocratic Oath requires that doctors promise to ” do no harm or injustice to (my patients).” Doctors are human, too, however, and sometimes make mistakes.
Still, many of these mistakes are avoidable. Mistakes that cause a patient to become worse or make a condition go from uncomfortable to life-threatening are unacceptable. In these cases, suing a doctor, medical professional or institution for malpractice may be in order.

Helping Victims Of Doctor And Hospital Negligence
The definition of medical negligence is considered to be conduct below a generally accepted standard of medical care. To prove this, a separate medical expert may have to be brought in to show that this level of care was below the norm and, therefore, the practitioner was negligent.
Our lawyers at Rumizen Weisman Attorneys work with these experts on a regular basis and know how to explain to a jury where a medical professional failed in his or her duty to a patient. You can trust us to present a strong case to an insurance company – or to the courts with the goal of a positive end to your case.
