There are many misconceptions about valid medical malpractice claims. Raleigh medical malpractice lawyers at Brent Adams & Associates annually consult with individuals who believe their healthcare treatments qualify as malpractice, when in fact, they are not. Since there is no national “standard of care,” proving a violation of this standard is the key to opening a valid medical malpractice claim.
Raleigh medical malpractice lawyer Brent Adams reveals a dozen instances of common invalid injury claims in his new book, The Truth About Medical Malpractice Claims. One of these situations involves a patient who had a bad result from their experience with their doctor. Bad results from your healthcare provider are not indicative of malpractice. Good health is not guaranteed by any physician. Most medications have side effects that may be detrimental to a patient’s health, and certain surgical procedures have a higher risk of adverse results.
In order to establish a valid medical malpractice claim against a doctor, you must show that the doctor violated the accepted and widely recognized standard of care exercised by doctors with education, training and experience similar to the doctor in question.
Even though hospital errors are happening daily, these mistakes don’t affect all patients. Do you have a medical malpractice case? Request a free copy of Brent Adams’ The Truth About Medical Malpractice Claims and compare your situation to other malpractice cases outlined and explained in its pages.
