Healthcare providers belong to a profession. Generally, a profession has its own licensing board that establishes the criteria for belonging to that profession, conducts an exam of applicants, mandates continuing education, and enforces the rules and regulations for that profession. However, just because someone passed an exam and belongs to a profession does not mean that they cannot make mistakes.
Mistakes are typically made when someone is being careless, inattentive, or simply doesn’t follow the policies and procedures that are in place to make sure they are doing their job safely. Being negligent is just another way of saying someone was being careless, inattentive, or didn’t follow the rules. Because medical mistakes are often viewed from a negligence standpoint, Medical Malpractice cases are also referred to as Medical Negligence cases.
We often describe to a jury that there is a standard of care that we all have the right to receive. The standard of care doesn’t mean that perfect decisions have to be made by our healthcare providers. It means that we expect providers to act reasonably and provide care that is consistent with their training and experience and the kind of care that we expect in our community. If we are lucky, we get that provider who demonstrates the highest level of competence in his or her field and that, of course, would be excellent care. The reality is that we sometimes receive care that falls short of this standard and that is when an experienced attorney can help.
Medical Malpractice or Medical Negligence occurs when the conduct of the healthcare provider falls below what is acceptable in our community. Our lawyers across the region, from convenient locations in Charlotte, Hickory, Greenville, and Columbia, are often asked to evaluate a situation in which a poor outcome occurred. However, poor outcomes do not necessarily translate to negligent care. Poor outcomes can certainly occur even at the very highest level of competence and care. An experienced lawyer knows the difference and will guide you through the process of evaluating your situation correctly.
It is even more important to choose the right lawyer to represent you for a Medical Malpractice case because of changes in the law over recent years which act to limit the recovery that a person can receive if they have been injured by medical malpractice. At the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, P.C. we understand how important your health is to you and the impact medical malpractice can have on you and your entire family.
Most importantly, we know how important it is to listen to you and to hear what happened so that we can understand how you and your family have been affected. It is our job to convey that information on your behalf, whether that is to an insurance company or to a jury. The bills and expenses from an injury often speak for themselves, but lending our voice to demonstrate the impact on your life is where the true value of an experienced lawyer can be found.
Rely on the experienced attorneys and professional staff at the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, P.C. with lawyers and staff in Charlotte, Greenville, Hickory, and Columbia to help you navigate through a complex medical and legal system to ensure that you recover everything that the law allows you to recover for your injuries.
