Patients see their doctors and nurses for trusted advice and treatment regarding their health, but at times, these trusted medical professionals can cause patients to suffer due to negligent acts. Patients are entitled to receive a standard of care, which medical professionals may fail to provide if there are careless acts, including errors in diagnosis and lack of proper treatment. If this occurs, you may have a medical malpractice case.
Unfortunately, medical malpractice is common as it is the third leading cause of death in the United States.
Patients trust that they will be treated and on the road to recovery, not being caused additional harm. Medical professionals who choose to take shortcuts instead of following proper safety procedures should be held accountable for their negligence.
However, in order to have a medical malpractice case, the patient must be able to prove that the doctors or nurses caused injury as a direct result of negligence. In other words, a competent doctor or nurse would no have made the same mistakes and neglected their duties. That’s why you need an experienced Alabama medical malpractice lawyer to fight for you.
