If you have been injured while under the care of a physician or healthcare provider, we understand the financial burden of medical bills is only part of the story. Many victims in California continue to suffer both physical and emotionally. While every incident is different, if you feel unsure about whether your injury qualifies for a medical malpractice claim, there are some important aspects to consider.
Within the medical community, certain medical treatments for injuries, diseases or other ailments are considered acceptable and appropriate. While this may vary from patient to patient depending on personal factors, if a healthcare worker deviates from these accepted practices, then he or she may have violated the standard of care. This standard of care is intended to protect patients from receiving substandard or inappropriate care.
