What is medical malpractice?Return to FAQ Videos
Medical Malpractice is the failure for a physician to use the acceptable standards of care.
The problem with a Med Mal action is there is medical negligence that doesn’t necessary point to a severe enough injury for us to prosecute. We have to comprehensively review the documents, an affidavit signed by a physician or specialist; and series of records leading to an injury causing damages.
The client should not make the determination that the injury is significant enough. We need to know client’s damages, future problem, and possibly a need for surgery. Because of the statute of limitations, its two years from date of injury, or time known, time is of the essence. Contact Pendas Law attorneys so that we can investigate and take care of everything. It is highly unlikely that a Medical Malpractice victim could represent himself, and be able to follow the necessary steps, and even have the resources in place. You have to put the physician on notice of your intentions, and it can cost thousands to initiate the case. Time is of the essence.
