Are you a victim of medical negligence?

Even with these technological and medical advances, cases of negligence still occur regularly. In fact, medical errors are the sixth most common cause of death in the USA. Are you a victim of medical negligence? Contact our West Palm Beach medical negligence lawyer at the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo, P.A. for an evaluation of your case.
How can I prove that my doctor was negligent?
Has the outcome of your surgery or medical treatment left you with a diminished quality of life that you suspect could have been avoided? Have you suddenly lost a loved one who was being treated or underwent surgery? If these events are a result of your doctor failing to follow the accepted standard of care for the circumstances presented, you may be able to recover compensation. Proving negligence is complex whether the case involves an injury, illness, condition, or wrongful death outcome. Patients or survivors may be reluctant to sue the doctor, nurse or hospital. This is understandable, but the fact that the doctor or nurse did not intentionally make a treatment error is not a valid defense.
Medical treatments do have inherent risks, but when an act of negligence has been fully established, the victim should receive compensation for their injuries and other losses. Doctors and other medical professionals are expected to provide treatment at an accepted standard of care, despite any other events that may demand their attention. Emergency room environments require fast thinking and correct assessment of patient needs. If you or a loved one was injured as a result of emergency room treatment, negligence can be proven when standards of care for emergency room treatment were not met. Our firm can evaluate the details and advise you of your rights with regard to pursuing compensation.
