You Can Trust Medical Malpractice Attorney David A. Sims to Protect Your Rights
Medical malpractice is said to exist when a medical professional either neglects his duty to provide appropriate medical care or acts in an inappropriate manner that goes against standard medical operating procedures. If you or a loved one have been injured or died as a result of medical malpractice in West Virginia, you can trust Medical Malpractice Attorney, David A. Sims, to protect your rights and secure your claim or lawsuit to the financial compensation that you are entitled to under West Virginia law.
Negligence occurs when: The duty of the medical professional to provide the patient with care (the doctor-patient relationship) is breached (reasonable care such as would be provided by his peers is not provided), which then results in injury (directly resultant from the breach of care), through which the victim/caretaker suffers damages (medical bills, pain, financial loss, death, etc.).
Gross negligence is similar to negligence, except that the action (the breach of duty) taken would be so obviously wrong as to be evident to any person (i.e. a case in which a surgeon removed a healthy eye instead of a cancerous eye).
