Even though we entrust our health and our lives to medical professionals, and they usually do an outstanding job of taking care of us, sometimes mistakes are made. While not every mistake rises to the level of medical malpractice, when a doctor or health care professional's negligence injures a patient or worsens a condition, the results are often devastating and you should explore if you have a claim by contacting a knowledgeable attorney.
At Higgins, Roberts & Suprunowicz, P.C., our team of litigators handles medical malpractice cases with skill and attention to detail. We are here to protect the rights of our clients in instances where a doctor or other medical professional failed to exercise the proper standard of care. Medical malpractice claims center around whether the medical professional breached his or her duty of care when treating a patient. If your doctor or another health care professional acted negligently or used a treatment method not normally accepted in the medical community, we will work diligently to prove it.
