The Shachtman Law Firm has helped families who have lost loved ones as a result of Medical Malpractice and Nursing Home Abuse. Medical professionals, doctors, chiropractors, therapists, and nurses must act within the standard of care applicable to their fields of expertise. A medical provider is negligent if he or she breaches the standard of care and causes harm to a patient.
In order to succeed in a malpractice case, you must be able to prove at least three things:
The medical professional breached the applicable standard of care
The breach of the standard of care caused the injury at issue
The Plaintiff sustained damages
