Hospitals, Doctors, Nurses, Therapists, and even Nursing Home Care Providers all have a duty under law to provide you with reasonably competent medical care. If they fall short of providing the care required by law, known as the “Standard of Care” in treating you or following your medical case, the law requires that those negligent medical providers be held responsible and pay for their mistakes. This is known as the law of medical malpractice. A jury MUST hold negligent doctors and medical providers accountable for medical mistakes that fall short of the standard of care.
A bad result whether from surgery or medication, or from a reasoned disagreement among different doctors, or even a medical mistake that could have been avoided, is not alone enough to prove medical malpractice. Only when unreasonably dangerous behavior, both from failing to take action, or from taking the wrong action that is deemed to be below the standard of care is malpractice.

In order for a patient or their family (in case of death) to be able to recover compensation for a medical mistake, it must also be shown that the negligence caused the specific injury or death of that patient.
The medical negligence attorneys at Crockett Law Firm are dedicated to helping patients and their families determine in good conscience whether a mistake was the result of negligence by a doctor, nurse, hospital or therapist, and if so, whether that mistake caused injury or death as a direct result of the medical malpractice. We all deserve to know that we received at least the basic proper level of care required by law.
