People who have been harmed by medical negligence are entitled to claim compensation for financial losses, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic losses. But, it is important to remember that not all adverse medical outcomes are the result of negligence. Before a medical malpractice case can proceed, a careful examination of the facts concerning the medical care provided must occur.

At Miller & Wagner, we vigorously represent people and families who have suffered injuries or death due to medical negligence. If you or a family member has been harmed by a negligent doctor, nurse, hospital, or other medical provider, we can represent you.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

When a medical provider fails to perform treatment with the care, skill and diligence required, and an injury or death results, there may be an actionable medical malpractice case. However, for a malpractice case to succeed, many facts must be established, including:

  • The existence of a medical relationship between the patient and the medical provider
  • The standard of care that the medical provider owed the patient
  • How the medical provider failed to meet that standard of care
  • A causal link between the medical care provided or lack of care and the injuries the patient suffered

In addition, to be actionable a case must meet certain criteria, including the medical malpractice statute of limitations.
