Hospital negligence can happen. Sometimes these mistakes have severe and permanent consequences. Patient safety is a relatively recent initiative in healthcare, emphasizing the reporting, analysis and prevention of medical error and adverse healthcare events. The frequency and magnitude of avoidable adverse events was not well known until the 1990's, when reports in several countries revealed a staggering number of patient injuries and deaths each year.
Hospital Negligence Attorneys
Medical malpractice is an act or omission by a health care provider which deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury to the patient or substantial loss of income. Simply put, medical malpractice is professional negligence (by a healthcare provider) that causes an injury.
Accident Recovery Team is selective about Medical Malpractice cases and welcomes the opportunity to review your case or the case of someone you know. There is no fee unless we collect money for your case.
Just because you sign a consent form when treatment is received does not give the health care provider the right to commit malpractice. Even though you or someone you know accepts the stated risks and complications that may arise from a procedure or treatment doesn't relieve any medical provider - whether an Emergency Room doctor, Attending Physician, Psychiatrist or other health care provider - from their health care responsibilities to provide a standard of care associated with your medical treatment or health care.
Your rights and health are important. Accident Recovery Team lawyers are experienced attorneys formerly retained by various insurance companies who understand the complexities of law and the importance of defending the rights of the plaintiff.
