What Does It Take To Have A Case?
Medical malpractice cases are extremely difficult to prove. Your injury or illness must have several factors present to serve as the basis of an actionable case. You must prove that:
- Your health care provider owed you a duty of care
- They deviated from this standard of care
- The health care provider’s negligence caused or contributed to your illness or injury
- The negligence caused demonstrable harm
Mr. Altman understands how to determine whether these factors are present in your incident, gather detailed evidence and present this information convincingly before a judge or jury.
Did A Doctor Fail To Diagnose You?
One of the most common forms of medical negligence is misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose. Not every improper diagnosis constitutes medical malpractice. However, if it resulted in inadequate treatment or lack of treatment, you may have a case.
