If you have been injured by a negligent doctor, you may have cause to sue and recover damages related to your pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, lost wages from work, and more.
In medical malpractice lawsuits, the stakes are high. The doctor wants to avoid a judgment, while you may not be able to return to work for several months (if ever). You need an attorney who you can be confident will press until the defendants come back with a figure that reasonably compensates you for all your injuries. The experienced attorneys of Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC provide top-quality medical malpractice representation to Findlay residents. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Medical malpractice sometimes happens to the same doctor over and over again. In other cases, it is the staff of the hospital that, overworked and with too much on their plates, neglects a patient who suffers a serious medical event. The most common causes of medical malpractice include:
Medical malpractice is proven when the plaintiff can show that the doctor’s standard of care did not meet the prevailing standard of care for that doctor’s field of medicine. For instance, an obstetrician is required to know about how infections in an expecting mother may impact her baby. If they neglect treatment or prescribe a treatment that harms the fetus, they can be held liable under the law.
