Medical Malpractice Attorneys

We place significant trust in the doctors, nurses, surgeons, and medical staff to care for ourselves and our loved ones. However, that trust isn’t always upheld. Sometimes, the actions of healthcare professionals lead to harm rather than good.

According to a recent Forbes article, medical errors cause 251,000 fatalities annually in the United States, accounting for 9.5% of all deaths. If you or a loved one were a victim of medical malpractice, you may have a legal claim. The experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Ramos Law are here to ensure you receive the compensation that’s rightfully yours.

Don’t let the medical professionals get away with their wrongdoing. Contact Ramos Law now for a complimentary consultation.

Proving medical negligence involves establishing several elements. Although the standards of proof differ by jurisdiction, the following areas are generally addressed in medical malpractice cases:

  • Duty of care: The duty of care is the accepted standard within the medical sector. Generally speaking, it includes the level of care a reasonably competent provider in the same field would offer the patient in similar circumstances.
  • Breach of duty: Once the duty of care is established, the next step is to prove that the healthcare professional has deviated from the accepted standard. Expert testimony is crucial, as other medical professionals must testify about the level of care.
  • Causation: Causation involves establishing the direct connection between the healthcare provider’s actions and the injury. Expert testimony may also be required to link the breach of duty to the harm.
  • Damages: Proving damages includes demonstrating tangible suffering, often via medical expenses or lost wages.
  • Proximate cause: Proximate cause includes showing that the patient’s injury was a foreseeable and preventable consequence of the healthcare professional’s actions.

Seeking counsel from experienced medical malpractice attorneys is crucial to your case. At Ramos Law, we work diligently to gather evidence and coordinate with experts to ensure you receive total compensation for your injury.

A lawyer’s counsel and support are crucial in pursuing a medical malpractice case. At Ramos Law, our attorneys can help in the following ways:

    • Case evaluation: We assess the details of your case to determine if you have a valid claim, considering factors like the standard of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages.
    • Investigation: Our medical malpractice lawyers thoroughly investigate the evidence supporting your case. It may involve obtaining medical records, consulting with expert witnesses, and collecting other relevant documentation.
    • Expert witnesses: We work alongside medical experts who can testify to the standard of care and whether the provider’s actions strayed from the accepted medical practice, leading to harm. 
    • Legal strategy: Our team identifies the strongest arguments, anticipates potential challenges, and formulates a plan to present your case effectively.
    • Navigating complex legal procedures: We’re familiar with the intricacies of the legal system and can ensure that all necessary documents are filed correctly and deadlines are met.
    • Negotiation: Many medical malpractice cases are resolved through negotiation and settlement. Our lawyers can negotiate with the opposing party or their insurance company to reach a fair settlement that compensates you for your damages.
    • Representation: If negotiation doesn’t settle, we’re fully prepared to represent your case before a judge and jury, presenting evidence, examining witnesses, and arguing legal points.
