Medical Devices & Medical Negligence
Medical providers are required to exercise reasonable care in accordance with the standards of care for the profession involved. If a doctor, surgeon, hospital, or other medical provider acts, or fails to act, in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care, then that provider may be liable for an injured person’s damages.
Though the majority of health care providers do good work, mistakes are sometimes made which could adversely affect a person, as well as their friends and family, for the rest of their lives. The Overholt Law Firm represents individuals and their families whose medical provider has breached the standard of care in diagnosing or treating medical conditions.
