Medical professionals have a duty to abide by a reasonable standard of care. If a medical error occurs and it can be shown that the surgeon, nurse, physician, anesthesiologist, or other healthcare professional acted in a manner that falls short of the standards adhered to by his or her peers, it may be grounds for a medical malpractice claim. In such cases, the liable party, as well as his or her employer, may be held accountable for damages relating to the financial and non-financial losses of the victim, including medical expenses, loss of wages, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering. At Younker Hyde Macfarlane, we have extensive experience with medical malpractice litigation and would be happy to help. To arrange a consultation, contact our personal injury group today.
