The vast majority of doctors in Colorado are amazing, talented, compassionate individuals who will do anything to help their patients. Unfortunately, there are some situations where accidents happen, and patients may be harmed by doctors who are not paying attention or who do not have the best interests of their patients at heart. We are Ridder Law, and we understand that medical mistakes can be frustrating. We provide medical malpractice services, and it would be our pleasure to take a look at your case to see if we can recover compensation on your behalf.
What Qualifies as Medical Malpractice?
The standards regarding medical malpractice can be complicated, which is why you need to reach out to an attorney as quickly as possible. Some of the requirements that need to be met for an incident to qualify as medical malpractice include:
- Duty: You need to prove that the doctor had a duty of care to you. Did you have a scheduled appointment? Or, was the doctor simply responding to the scene of an accident to help?
- Deviation: You need to prove that the doctor deviated from the readily accepted best practices and standards of care of his or her medical specialty.
- Damages: You need to prove you were harmed in some way. Did you require additional medications as a result of the deviation? Did you incur additional financial expenses?
- Direct Cause: You need to prove that the deviation of that doctor was the cause of your harm.
If all of these elements can be proven, you may have a medical malpractice case.
What Medical Malpractice Cases Do We Handle?
Medical malpractice comes in many shapes and forms, but because the cases can be a challenge to prove, we tend to handle exceptionally serious cases of medical malpractice.
