Doctors and other medical care professionals spend every working day with people’s lives in their hands. Whether it’s a routine procedure or something more complicated, there is always some risk involved with medical treatment. That risk is multiplied when the doctor responsible for the treatment behaves negligently. If a medical care professional deviates from the accepted standard of care and you suffer an injury because of it, you may have a successful medical malpractice case. Medical malpractice can involve failure to diagnose, errors in surgery, nursing home negligence and other forms of medical negligence.

Potential medical malpractice claims must be investigated by a medical review panel. If you bring your potential medical malpractice claim to the Townsley Law Firm, staff attorneys will help you explain your case to the panel of three physicians who practice in an area of medicine related to your claim.

The panel will help determine whether a medical professional in your life has not adhered to the appropriate standard of care. If the panel finds that there is negligence, it is possible that whoever was responsible for treating you will be willing to settle the claim. If the panel is split or decides that there is no negligence, the claim may not be worth pursuing.
