When medical providers and healthcare institutions make mistakes that result in serious injuries or death, they must be held responsible. We, the attorneys of Goldberg, Goldberg & Maloney, have a long and successful record of recovering financial compensation for victims of medical malpractice, as well as medical negligence.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
People tend to think of medical malpractice as a doctor being careless or reckless, but in truth, the legal implications of the term are a bit more complex. In the medical profession, it is expected that doctors, surgeons, and other medical decision-makers always act with prudence. In other words, they are to carefully weigh the risks of each action they may take, inform their patient of those risks (unless it is an emergency situation and the patient is incapacitated), and use their best judgment in moving forward with a medical plan.
When a doctor is aware of a risk posed to their patient but fails to prevent it, they can be held personally and financially responsible for their miscalculation. Because the average person does not share the same medical knowledge as their doctors, surgeons, and nurses, it can be tricky to prove that malpractice truly did occur. That is why it is so important that you choose a medical malpractice attorney with experience. At Goldberg, Goldberg & Maloney, we have the knowledge and insight to determine whether you have a case and how you should proceed with that case.
