What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice, also known as medical negligence, is a term used to describe instances in which medical professionals—including doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, dentists, surgeons, and other practitioners—fail to act in a way that is compliant with the standard of care widely accepted throughout the medical community. At Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton, our medical malpractice attorneys represent victims and their family members in cases involving a medical professional who breached the standard of care in diagnosing or treating a medical condition.
We handle a wide variety of medical malpractice and medical negligence cases, including those that involve:
These types of claims are often incredibly complex. Victims must prove that the injuries they sustained were a result of medical malpractice or negligence. They must also show that they would not have sustained such injuries under the care of a competent medical professional.
Proving liability can be incredibly difficult in these types of cases. Special laws govern medical malpractice claims, many of which are designed to make it very difficult for patients and their families to make any type of recovery.
At Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton, our personal injury lawyers Birmingham have years of experience handling these types of complex claims. We are incredibly selective about the types of medical malpractice claims we take on and will only accept cases after a thorough evaluation.
We employ several nurse paralegals who assist us with a careful review of medical records and related literature. Typically, the individuals we choose to represent have suffered severe or debilitating harm, permanent injuries, or the death of a family member. Our selective focus allows us a greater ability to use our extensive resources, time, and knowledge to fight for the just recovery you deserve.
