What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is the failure of a doctor or other medical professional to provide a patient with a diligent standard of care. In other words, if you or a loved one were injured or killed because of a doctor’s mistake, they are most likely guilty of malpractice. A doctor has a duty to uphold a certain standard of care, and failing in that duty, even if without malicious intent, can result in serious consequences. Pursuing these cases is important not only for your financial wellbeing, but also to ensure that all medical professionals remain diligent and take measures to ensure these mistakes do not repeat themselves.

Some common examples of medical malpractice include:

Proving Medical Malpractice

The challenge of litigating a successful medical malpractice case is demonstrating to the court that a doctor made a mistake that another medical professional wouldn’t have made. It is almost impossible to do this without testimony from another medical professional. At Somera & Silva, LLP, we have a physician on staff and our co-founding attorney is a licensed medical doctor. We can analyze your case and help you determine whether or not malpractice has occurred. Additionally, we can secure expert witness testimony to back up your claim in court.
