Medical Malpractice

Mistakes made by doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers can have a dramatic impact on a patient’s life. These medical mistakes often cause significant pain and suffering, disfigurement, and even death. To cover the cost of these mistakes, healthcare providers often carry a significant amount of insurance. In order to obtain compensation for the injuries that you sustained as a result of medical malpractice, you need an experienced and aggressive attorney who will fight to represent you against those powerful insurance companies. The lawyers at JM Blattner Law and the attorneys in the Firm’s network would be happy to meet with you for a free consultation, and evaluate your potential claims.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE IS…
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider acts negligently, which is called “a breach in the standard of care.” The “standard of care” is what a reasonably competent healthcare provider, with similar training and experience, would do under the same or similar circumstances. When a healthcare care provider breaches the “standard of care,” and that negligence causes injury to a patient, the elements of a medical malpractice claim have been met.

Past medical expenses
Past lost wages
Future medical expenses
Future lost wages
