Medical Malpractice

According to a recent study by Johns Hopkins, more than 250,000 people in the United States die every year because of medical mistakes, making it the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer. Other studies report much higher figures, claiming the number of deaths from medical error to be as high as 440,000. It is estimated that the number of non-fatal injuries that are the result of mistakes by medical professionals is even higher.

Although every medical procedure carries some element of risk, all medical patients have the right to receive competent medical treatment. When patients do not receive competent medical treatment and suffer injuries as a result, they are the victims of medical malpractice and are entitled to just compensation.

In order to prove that medical malpractice has occurred the patient and his/her attorneys must first prove that the treatment or care the patient received from a healthcare provider fell short of the accepted standard of care. The patient and his/her attorney must then prove that the patient suffered an injury or harm as a direct result of the improper treatment.

Due to the complex nature of medical treatment, proving that a medical professional committed malpractice during a particular course of treatment can be very complicated and difficult. In fact, not all personal injury lawyers have the necessary experience to properly handle malpractice cases.

However, the attorneys at Rosenberg & Rodriguez, PLLC have many years of experience litigating medical malpractice cases. We work with a team of medical professionals who assist us in evaluating potential malpractice cases to determine whether the treatment received fell short of the standard of care that was required. If so, we aggressively seek just compensation for our clients.

If you think you or a loved one has suffered medical malpractice injuries, please do not hesitate to call our offices for a free evaluation.
