According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.—right behind heart disease and cancer.
Unfortunately, many patients choose not to pursue valid medical malpractice claims for numerous reasons: Some are concerned that other doctors will learn of their cases and refuse to treat them. Some fear—incorrectly—that it will lead to an increase in the cost of their medical care.
And others forgo valid claims due to the perceived personal and financial costs associated with litigation.
To avoid being a victim, you need to know how to proceed in the right way. Our goal is to aid you down that path.
What is Medical Malpractice or Medical Negligence?
Medical malpractice occurs when a health-care provider deviates from the recognized “standard of care” in the treatment of a patient.
A lot of medical malpractice cases turn on this question: What was the medical standard of care in the situation in question?
The “standard of care” is based on the customary practices of the average physician given the scope of their practice, i.e., what the average physician would customarily or typically do in similar circumstances.
Medical Malpractice is a departure from good and accepted medical care causing injury. As with anyone, doctors are held accountable for their actions, as we all are.
In order to confirm evidence of wrongdoing, we need to have medical experts review your records before being able to start a lawsuit for your injuries. One of the greatest advantages the Brown Firm in Okatie, SC has is attorney Dr. Harry Brown Jr., who as a doctor, understands medical terminology and "standards of care" far beyond that of most practicing lawyers.
Malpractice cases are one of the most hotly contested areas of law today. The defense attorneys we often encounter are extremely well educated and trained at defending these lawsuits.
