Everyone makes mistakes. But when doctors, nurses, therapists, or dentists make them, the effects can last a lifetime. Patients have a right to expect that medical procedures will be properly performed. Medical malpractice attorneys represent you if you are injured by a healthcare provider's careless or accidental mistakes. For example, if a doctor leaves behind gauze in your body during surgery, resulting in an infected wound that requires even more surgery, the doctor committed medical malpractice. Medical malpractice attorneys can recognize injuries caused by mistakes; they know the most common mistakes that cause injuries, and they know how to find and present information useful to prove your case. Medical malpractice attorneys also know how much insurance is available if the health care provider is responsible for what happened to you.
