Each of us has often been asked, “What is medical malpractice?” Medical malpractice is defined as a violation of the standard of care that causes injury. The standard of care is what a reasonable physician would do in the treatment of you. As medical negligence attorneys, it is our job to look not only at the injury our clients sustained, but also at the care received. It comes down to whether or not your doctor made a mistake. It is not enough to show that you were hurt after a physician treated you.
As medical negligence attorneys, Harrell, Smith & Williams are familiar with what such negligence looks like. We are able to listen to you and weigh your concerns with our familiarity of the medicine. We will also obtain your medical records and have them reviewed by a physician. That physician will then be able to give an opinion regarding your doctor’s actions. Remember, the standard of care is what a reasonable would have done. We have to find that reasonable doctor to tell us what he or she would have done.
We also look at the harm caused by your doctor’s mistake.
