Medical Malpractice Cases Can Involve More Than Doctors

When we hear about a medical malpractice case, we assume that the negligent party is a doctor, and, sadly, we’re right most of the time. However, many other health care providers and facilities can also be the targets of malpractice litigation. We have built successful cases against the following:

  • Dentists
  • Nurses
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Hospitals
  • Outpatient clinics
  • Surgeons
  • Obstetricians
  • Emergency care physicians
  • Other health care providers

However, it is important to note that not all injuries are grounds to pursue damages in a medical malpractice lawsuit. In order for a health care provider to be guilty of malpractice, we must prove the following:

  • The provider was negligent, and that negligence caused injury or death to someone under his or her care.
  • The provider failed to provide the governing standard of care when treating a patient, and that patient was injured as a result.
