Medical malpractice is the legal term for when a medical professional commits a harmful act of professional negligence against a patient. One way to seek resolution in a medical malpractice case is to file a claim against the medical professional believed to be liable. Many patients, in an effort to resolve the matter expeditiously, may choose to seek resolution in other ways first.
Not long ago, we discussed the various ways resolution can be sought through means other than filing a claim. Contacting the medical professional and contacting the professional's licensing board are two alternatives that may make sense depending on the specific circumstances.
What if these options are not fruitful or are not thought to be advisable? In that case, many patients would be well-advised to safeguard their legal rights with a medical malpractice claim against the medical professional believed to be responsible. The attorneys at the Law Firm of Leisawitz Heller have over a century's worth of experience with helping clients with their cases.
