Everyone makes mistakes, but when medical professionals make mistakes, your safety, prognosis and life may be jeopardized. Mistakes made in a medical environment can lead to injuries with life-long consequences or wrongful death.

If you have suffered injury because of a medical professional’s or organization’s negligence, you may seek compensation through a personal injury claim. To collect the full compensation you deserve, you may need the help of Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC.

When You Have Grounds for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

In order to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, you must establish:

  • That you did not receive the appropriate standard of care
    Standard of care is the basic level of treatment that should be administered to a person for a specific condition. There is no one standard of care, however. The basic level of care must account for a variety of patient factors, including:

    • Age
    • Gender
    • Physical condition
    • Medical history

    Medical professionals may fail to provide the standard of care because of:

    • Medical negligence, an umbrella term that covers:
      • Surgical mistakes
      • Medication prescription error
      • Medication administration error
      • Failure to respond to a patient’s needs
    • Misdiagnosis

    The standard of medical care you received may also be negatively affected by (lack of) the cleanliness and upkeep of medical facilities.

  • The lack of appropriate care caused you harm
    Proof of medical negligence alone is not enough to warrant a medical malpractice case. You must also demonstrate that a substandard level of care resulted in bodily harm.

Medical malpractice applies to all medical fields, including dentistry.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

Medical malpractice cases are highly technical. In order to prove you did not receive the appropriate standard of care and connect that to your injuries, you will need to understand a lot of medical jargon.
