Fortuna & Cartelli, P.C. attorneys are experienced in medical malpractice law and can help clients determine whether or not malpractice has occurred. Doctors and other health-care providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients.
MEDICAL MALPRACTICE occurs when a physician, hospital or nurse fails to properly treat a medical condition and this negligent act or omission results in injury or death to the patient.
In order to determine if medical negligence occurred, it is necessary that a medical expert be retained. This expert should be well qualified to give a medical opinion and is therefore normally board certified in the relevant field of medicine.
Medical malpractice is a complicated and always vigorously defended by insurance companies. Therefore, it is crucial to team with a law firm with the experience and proven track record in medical malpractice cases.
Negligence in medical malpractice cases can occur in a variety of situations, such as:
A delay or failure in diagnosing a disease
A surgical or anesthesia-related mistake during an operative procedure
The physician's failure to gain the informed consent of the patient for an operation or surgical procedure
A physician has made the correct diagnosis, but then fails to provide proper treatment
Misuse of Prescription Drugs or a Medical Device or Implant.
