When do I Need a Medical Malpractice Attorney?

June 26, 2014

When you seek treatment from a doctor or hospital, you expect to receive proper care, or at the very least not to leave in worse condition than when you arrived. But far too often, medical care professionals fail to look out for their patients’ best interests, and when this happens, it’s the victims that pay the price. The medical malpractice attorneys at Wapner Newman represent victims of medical malpractice every day, and we stand ready to serve you.

Medical malpractice claims vary from one case to another, but there are four criteria that must be met:

  • The health care provider had a duty to act responsibly in the patient’s best interest.
  • The health care provider breached his or her duty.
  • The patient sustained physical or emotional damage while in the care of the doctor, nurse, or other health care professional.
  • This breach of duty caused the patient’s damage.

These criteria are for the legal system to decide, not for the victim. If you’ve been injured while under the care of the health care industry, then you need a medical malpractice attorney.

If you or a loved one has suffered at the hand of the medical industry, you have the right to seek compensation. Please contact the medical malpractice attorneys of Wapner Newman today, or call 800-529-6600 (800-529-6600) today to schedule your free consultation.
