Doctors, anesthesiologists, and other health care professionals owe their patients a duty of care. When they make medical mistakes, serious injuries can occur. As a result, innocent people may have to live with unnecessary injuries that require constant assistance.

If you or a loved one suffered at the hands of a negligent doctor, you should pursue a medical malpractice claim. The purpose of filing this type of lawsuit is to provide you with enough money to get the medical treatment or physical therapy you need to get back to the functioning level you were at before the injury. Or if your loved one is too badly injured, the compensation from a lawsuit would provide 24/7 nursing care, a hospital bed, and other things that would allow your family member to stay in their home instead of being put in a nursing home.
