Morgantown Medical Malpractice Lawyer
When you visit a doctor or other health care provider, you have a reasonable expectation that you will receive duly professional care. However, there are times that a doctor, nurse, or some other health care provider is negligent by failing to provide the level of care that is required under the circumstances. In other words, the health care provider’s treatment falls below ‘the applicable standard of care.’ When that happens, there has been medical malpractice, that is, medical negligence. There are nearly 100,000 cases of medical malpractice/negligence in the United States each year. Unfortunately, many times, the results of medical malpractice/negligence are catastrophic or even fatal. You have every right to get answers from your medical care providers.
