Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

When accidents happen, there is no substitute for a competent and expert lawyer who is on your side every step of the way.

We entrust our lives and the well-being of our loved ones to the medical profession.  Sometimes, a professional within the medical industry provides treatment that is below the standard of care and results in injury or death.  It is just unfair and not right.

At LegalForce, you are not alone.  We are here to help you and your loved ones get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Statistics have shown that as many as 195,000 people died due to medical error. This is staggering.

A plaintiff must establish all four elements of the tort of negligence for a successful medical malpractice claim.

  1. A duty was owed: a legal duty exists whenever a hospital or health care provider undertakes care or treatment of a patient.
  2. A duty was breached: the provider failed to conform to the relevant standard of care.
  3. The breach caused an injury: The breach of duty was a proximate cause of the injury.
  4. Damage: Without damage (losses which may be pecuniary or emotional), there is no basis for a claim, regardless of whether the medical provider was negligent. Likewise, damage can occur without negligence, for example, when someone dies from a fatal disease.

These claims are complex. At LegalForce RAPC Worldwide, we help our clients every step of the way.
