MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Doctors are essential members of our society and perform miracles on a daily basis.  Unfortunately, some doctors are negligent in the treatment of their patients. Brock & Gonzales, LLP represents patients who are harmed by doctors' negligence. 

WHAT CONSTITUTES MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?

A doctor must use the same skill and care that other doctors would use in the same situation. Failure to do so constitutes medical malpractice.

Examples of medical practice include a doctor failing to perform a medical procedure, i.e., surgery with the same skill and care that other reasonably careful doctors would use, or a doctor who fails to timely diagnose and treat a medical condition.  

WHAT IS RECOVERABLE IN A medical malpractice CASE?

  • Medical expenses
  • Monetary compensation for past and future pain, mental suffering, anxiety, humiliation, and emotional distress
  • Lost wages from work missed as a result of the malpractice
  • Punitive damages to punish the doctor, if warranted
