Medical providers are supposed
to offer us care and support during our most critical moments.
While most medical providers do offer excellent care that
will help us to heal, some providers do not hold themselves
to a requisite standard of care. When these medical professionals
fall below this standard of care, they may be guilty of medical
malpractice. The Law Office of Nadim I. Cook, P.C. represents
clients who have been injured due to the negligent or wrongful
actions of a medical provider.
Physicians, nurses, all members
of hospital staff, and any other individuals providing care
to a patient may be guilty of medical malpractice. We have
represented clients who have suffered devastating injuries
due to the actions or inaction of a variety of medical professionals.
Medical malpractice can include unsanitary or unclean conditions,
negligent care, surgical mistakes, hospital mistakes, failure
to diagnose, nursing home abuse, and many other issues.
It is important to remember that
not every unfavorable outcome following medical treatment
is a case of medical malpractice. We encourage potential clients
to ask themselves the following questions:
- Is the patient’s condition significantly
worse now, following treatment?
- Are the symptoms the patient experienced
following treatment commonly associated with the medical
procedure he or she underwent?
- Is the physician able to give a satisfactory
explanation for the patient’s symptoms?
If your physician cannot answer
your questions satisfactorily, you may have been a victim
of medical malpractice.
