Medical and Professional Malpractice
If you or a loved one has been harmed by medical malpractice, it is important to know your legal rights. At Miller Weber Kory LLP, we have extensive experience handling medical malpractice claims for our clients. We represent clients in claims and lawsuits that arise when people are injured by careless or intentional acts of a doctor, nurse, psychiatrist, dentist, chiropractor, podiatrist, hospital, or other healthcare provider. When these actions cause an injury to another person (but the actions do not rise to the level of a crime), they are said to be a "tort," or civil wrong, which can provide the basis for a lawsuit.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Mistakes and complications are common in medical treatment. When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring someone else, they are liable for the injury, and may be made to pay the injured person compensatory damages. Compensatory damages attempt to put an injured person back in the position he or she was in before being injured. Pursuing a medical malpractice claim is a lengthy process requiring thorough collection of medical records, extensive research, and review by medical professionals and experts.
