Health care providers, including physicians, mid-level practitioners, nurses, hospitals are required to provide care and treatment that fall within the standard of care. When a mistake is made, catastrophic injury or death can occur. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, please call the lawyers at Dugan & Giroux, Inc.
Proving Medical Malpractice
Medical Malpractice lawsuits can be complex, litigious and rife with legal nuances so having an experienced lawyer makes all the difference. In Kansas, determining whether you have a valid claim can be quite difficult. A victim of medical malpractice must prove:
- Duty of Care — The health care provider had an obligation to the patient to maintain a standard of care.
- Breach of Duty — The health care provider breached that duty of care by departing from the standard of care.
- Causation — That breach of duty caused the patient to suffer injuries.
- Damages — The patient’s injuries resulted in damages.
Filing a Malpractice Suit
All cases involving medical malpractice require rigorous investigation as well as the use of medical experts who assist in the work-up and litigation of a case. Before any lawsuit is filed, a lawyer must thoroughly understand all aspects of a given case to zealously advocate for a client and rebut any defenses a health care provider might have in a case. Medical malpractice cases are difficult, tricky, expensive and require a lawyer who is seasoned, skillful and battle proven. Once a lawsuit is filed, the lengthy fight for justice ensues and a difficult journey is set into motion. At Dugan & Giroux, we will lead the fight and obtain justice in the most complex of cases.
