Secure Your Future With A Free Case Review
You may have a medical malpractice claim if your treatment or procedure leaves you with injuries, illness, or other complications. If your doctor failed to adhere to the standard of care and otherwise followed widely accepted best practices and procedures, they can be held liable for your injuries. You may also have a medical malpractice claim if you are injured because your physician or other medical professional fails to inform you of the risks associated with your procedure and/or makes some other type of error. Because each medical malpractice case has unique considerations, you should contact Cooper Law Partners to evaluate whether you have a valid medical malpractice case.
