There are risks involved in all medical procedures, but when doctors fail to follow professional standards, those risks can be much higher. If you've been injured during medical treatment either in a doctor's office or hospital, or your doctor failed to diagnose a disease, you may have a legal claim for medical malpractice. Doctors and hospitals are held to a high standard of care in their treatment of patients. Deviation from that acceptable level of care may entitle a patient to recover money damages.
In the time of deep grief following a fatal accident, it is obviously difficult for family members to worry about investigating the cause of the accident and holding the responsible parties accountable. But it is important to act quickly to preserve evidence, gather names of witnesses and start an investigation of the circumstances surrounding the victim's death.
