A doctor has the duty to treat patients with care and diligence. His or her actions concerning your treatment must meet certain guidelines known as “the standard of care.”
A healthcare provider who fails to meet the standard of care may be required to pay for damages
caused by negligence.
Doctors generally act in good faith and do their best, and not all treatment-related injuries are caused by negligence
. But if you’ve been hurt because a provider failed to live up to professional standards, you need the best legal advice you can get. That’s because doctors and hospitals — along with their insurance company lawyers — work very hard to make sure that injured patients don’t get justice.
Insurance company lawyers don’t want you to know your rights. They don’t don’t want you to be able to navigate the complex legal system.
And they don’t want to go up against the award-winning
