Medical & Dental Malpractice

A medical care professional is required to use the same degree of proper care and skill provided by other trained, good standing professionals in the same field.  Liability may arise if a professional fails to meet the standard of care in their respective fields causing serious injuries to their patients.  An injured patient may pursue a medical malpractice claim against their health care provider by proving the applicable standard of care, that the practitioner failed to follow this standard of care, and that this failure is what caused the patient’s injury.

These types of cases involve shorter statutes of limitations and prelitigation panels, which add to the complexity of these cases compared to ordinary injury cases. These shorter statutes mean that there is a short timeframe to file a medical malpractice claim with the courts. The specific time frame differs depending on the type of malpractice, which our attorneys can determine.
