Have you been the victim of medical malpractice? Medical negligence or, as it is more commonly known, medical malpractice is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, behind only cancer and heart disease. What is medical malpractice? Medical malpractice is a legally actionable civil tort and occurs when a health care entity or professional causes injury to a patient through a negligent act or omission.
Medical malpractice may result in serious, life-changing injuries and, even worse, death. If you or, in case of death, your successors in interest, believe you have been the victim of medical malpractice, it is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. Pursuant to the Delaware law, a medical malpractice claim generally must be brought within 2 years from the date upon which such injury occurred. The earlier you consult with an attorney, the better opportunity you have to establish the elements and validity of your claim!
Multiple types of actions, or inaction, can constitute medical malpractice. These include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, failure to adequately treat, and improper treatment, including improper surgical treatment. Each of these types of malpractice can cause severe injuries.
The extent of your financial recovery is directly related to your injuries. It is always important to remember that, no matter the significance of your damages, no recovery can be made unless medical negligence can be proven beyond a preponderance of doubt. This is why a skilled attorney is needed to maximize your opportunity to receive compensation.
