Not necessarily. Unsuccessful or unexpected medical results do not necessarily qualify for a lawsuit simply because there is always a level of risk involved in the surgery. If the doctor did not act with negligence or carelessness, there are little grounds for a lawsuit.
We highly recommend that you hire a lawyer simply because of the complexity and extensive nature of a medical malpractice claim. A lawyer is there to work on your behalf and will alleviate some of the burdens of stress.
MedicineNet.com defines the standard of care as the “level at which the average, prudent provider in a given community would practice.” Essentially, it is “how similarly qualified practitioners would have managed the patient’s care under the same or similar circumstances.”
Wikipedia defines medical malpractice as “a legal cause of action that occurs when a medical or health care professional deviates from standards in his or her profession, thereby causing injury to a patient.” Instances of medical malpractice can occur in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to:
