What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when your health care provider causes you harm because the medical care they deliver is below what would normally be considered acceptable. As patients, we place our faith, our well-being, and our very lives, in the hands of doctors and nurses. Trusting them completely to act carefully and responsibly. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. Sometimes, for whatever reason, a medical professional’s work is careless or outright negligent. When that happens, the patient pays the price.

It is worth pointing out that not every medical case that turns out poorly is a case of medical malpractice. Medicine is not always the most precise science, and despite the staggering technological advances in the field of medicine – and the best of medical facilities – complications can still occur. Medical malpractice arises when your doctor fails to meet the minimum standard of care, which leads to an injured patient.

If you or a loved one has been seriously hurt during the course of medical treatment, Burg Simpson’s medical negligence attorneys are here to help. Reach out to Burg Simpson Wyoming today by calling 307-527-7891 or by filling out a Free Case Evaluation Form right now.

How Do You Determine Medical Malpractice?

When you or a loved one suffers an injury during a medical procedure, deciding whether the injury rises to the level of doctor malpractice can be difficult to determine. Our medical malpractice lawyers in Cody, Wyoming can help. Unfortunately, the injured party bears the burden of proof in a malpractice suit. This means that when you seek to bring a medical lawsuit, victims have to legally establish that:

  • The negligent medical professional owed a duty of care to the injured party
  • The medical professional failed to meet or deviated from an acceptable standard of care owed to the patient
  • A link exists between the healthcare professional’s negligent act and/or omission and the patient’s injury
  • Actual damage to the patient occurred

If you are convinced you were hurt as a result of a doctor’s negligence, please contact us so we can go over your condition. Call our Wyoming office of Burg Simpson today at 307-527-7891 for a free, no-obligation consultation.

What Is Your Medical Malpractice Case Worth?

Our experienced team of hospital malpractice lawyers, paralegals, and support staff will analyze every case carefully to assess the validity of your medical malpractice suit. The factors we consider include:

  • The nature and extent of the injury and the treatment received
  • The extent of liability of each party involved
  • The potential economic loss the victim suffered
  • Future medical needs and expenses
  • The types of damages that can be recovered include economic, non-economic and sometimes even punitive damages

Medical malpractice cases can be extremely difficult to present and costly to win. Because the evidence in a medical malpractice case is often highly complex and tough for the average juror to understand, you need both legal and medical experts on your side. That is why we have gathered together a knowledgeable team, which includes outside medical experts to review the facts of your medical lawsuit.

Let us help you get back on the road to recovery. Call Burg Simpson at 307-527-7891 before it is too late.

How Much Time Do I Have To File A Medical Malpractice Suit?

The statute of limitations in medical malpractice cases can vary wildly from state to state. In Wyoming, the standard statute of limitations is two years from the date of the incident. However, there are always exceptions to deadlines like this, which is why you need the experience of a trained negligence attorney. If you think you or a family member has been victimized by negligent medical treatment, do not waste time. Contact a medical claims lawyer at Burg Simpson Wyoming quickly to determine your best course of action going forward. Call 307-527-7891 today or fill out a Free Case Evaluation Form HERE.
