Medical malpractice is not simply bad medicine. In some instances, it may occur when a physician fails to perceive the risk of disease, thereby not making a timely diagnosis.
In other cases, medical malpractice occurs when physicians fail to act upon a risk that a reasonable person in his/her position would act upon by initiating treatment. Medical malpractice also occurs when physicians make mistakes in diagnosis or treatment that cause subsequent harm to a patient.
Regardless, in all cases of medical malpractice the common link is that the medical care received is below the accepted standard of care for the condition resulting in significant avoidable injury, worsening of the condition, unnecessary suffering or wrongful death.
We at Goldberg & Carlton will act decisively to analyze the facts of your case. In addition to our attorneys, the firm also has the benefit of working with renowned experts in determining whether malpractice has occurred and, if so, proving the case at trial.
Doctors have a responsibility to provide proper care to patients and to ensure that they are never exposed to unnecessary health risks. Unfortunately, there are times where doctors do not live up to this responsibility leaving patients and their loved ones to deal with the physical and financial burdens.
