There is nothing worse than the realization that you have a significant injury or illness. Although nobody likes a visit to the doctor, illnesses and injuries are an unavoidable part of life. Most people trust medical professionals to give them proper care. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and some medical professional leave you worse off than when you came.
If you were rendered ill or injured as the result of a medical professional in Arlington, you may have been the victim of medical malpractice.

Being hurt by someone you trusted with your health is bound to leave you wanting to know why. While it is unlikely that a medical professional intentionally caused you harm, it does not excuse the fact that negligence has put your health in jeopardy. Medical malpractice is a serious issue, and is responsible for 10 percent of all deaths in the United States.
There are numerous factors that can cause medical malpractice, such as misdiagnosis, errors in treatment, faulty aftercare, and mismanagement. Some of the most common medical malpractice errors are as follows:
As you can see, while potentially unintentional, these error could have been avoided with proper medical procedures. If you were the victim of one or more of these practices, you may want to contact an Arlington medical malpractice attorney to establish a claim.
In order to successfully establish a malpractice claim, three elements must be in play. The first element is that an established standard of care was violated. The next element that must be established is that this negligent behavior caused an injury. After establishing an injury took place, it must then be proven that said injury caused major repercussions.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.

It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.

The problem is that she was given the wrong blood type. Medical staff did not notice that the blood sample that […]

However, not all dogs understand what it means to protect or what it means to not attack. There are some dogs who are just wired to run and attack. It doesn’t make them […]
