Patients are dependent on medical and dental professionals for their expertise and services. There are over three thousand medical practitioners in Nebraska for more than 1.8 million people residing in the state. However, physicians and nurses are not exempt from making mistakes that sometimes result in illness, serious injury, or death. The American Medical Association (AMA) notes that it can cost thousands of dollars to defend physicians in medical malpractice claims, including the average payment of medical liability claims awarded to the victims.
Malpractice cases are brought when healthcare professionals do not practice according to the medical standards of Nebraska. Each situation will vary, but at JD.MD we pride ourselves in assisting attorneys with case evaluations, expert witnesses, and other support services. Our expert witnesses are knowledgeable in specialized medical and dental services and are well-qualified to provide you with unbiased opinions. Medical malpractice cases can include surgical errors, inappropriate medication prescriptions, delayed treatment, or the wrong diagnosis.
Many dental and medical malpractice cases in Michigan are a result of negligence on the part of a medical professional. If a health care provider commits an error, prescribes the wrong medication or treatment, delays diagnosis or treatment, or takes an action that causes other serious injury or illness, he or she may be found liable for the pain and suffering caused. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, medical errors like these result in fatalities for more than 200,000 patients each year across the United States. If your client has been involved in a medical malpractice situation, it is clear that you should seek the assistance of a malpractice expert service provider.
