Q: What is Medical Malpractice?
A: Medical malpractice is a term describing conduct that deviates from the standard of care owed by medical professionals to their patients. The standard of care requires medical professionals — typically doctors, nurses or hospitals — to exercise the same degree of knowledge, skill or care that another reasonably careful medical professional would use in a similar situation. Medical malpractice can be both an act that causes an injury or a failure to act in a way that would treat or prevent an injury. A few common examples of medical malpractice include:
Delayed or inappropriate treatment
Failure to diagnose or treat a condition
Errors in prescribing
Q: I signed a consent form. Does that mean I have waived my rights?
A: No. When you sign a consent form, you’re acknowledging that there are known risks associated with the medical treatment you are about to undergo. However, a signed consent form does not mean you have acknowledged or consented to conduct which falls below the standard of care owed by all medical professionals to their patients. Simply signing a consent form does not excuse or permit a medical professional to commit malpractice and your right to bring a medical malpractice claim is not waived because of it.
Q: Who can be held responsible for medical malpractice?
A: Any health care professional (and the companies they work for) can be held liable for medical malpractice. I will help identify the potentially liable parties as part of their investigation to ensure my clients receive the maximum recovery.
Q: What sort of information should I bring with me when I meet with you regarding my domestic law case?
A: First, you will need you to inform me about your domestic situation. Whether you are facing divorce, are seeking an annulment, are going through a child custody battle, or are going through a support dispute, you’ll need to get me up to speed on the state of your family law matter. Once I understand your case, I will need copies of whatever court documents, or legal documents that you have. More documents may need to be obtained as we pursue the case.
Q: What is Litigation?
A: Litigation refers to a case which is or may be proceeding through the traditional court process. Sometimes clients consult with us who are already in the court process or who have already been served with court papers, and require an attorney to help them navigate the court process and protect their interests. The litigation process is not always by choice, and clients are often fearful that litigation will increase the level of conflict and cost to the parties. However this is not always true and clients do have choices they can make even in litigation.
