Is a Bad Result Automatically Medical Malpractice?

Medicine is an exceptionally complicated field, and even the best physician will handle cases that come to a tragic result. The law recognizes this. As such, an unfortunate outcome, no matter how tragic, does not automatically qualify as medical malpractice.

At The Cochran Firm, a key part of our medical malpractice lawyers' role is to distinguish between actual medical malpractice cases and those where a tragic result does not rise to legal standards.

We've talked before on this blog about the concept of "standards of care," which are how the law defines medical malpractice. Basically, a medical malpractice lawyer has to show that the medical professional failed to live up to a standard of care accepted by the wider medical community.

Of course, medical mistakes, especially surgical errors, are rarely cut and dry. Evaluating the viability of a claim requires a medical malpractice lawyer with extensive, specialized experience.
The Cochran Firm offers this experience. We are always up front and honest with any potential clients about the viability of a claim.

If you need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to evaluate your case, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
