Did you leave your doctor’s office in worse shape than you arrived, receive an incorrect diagnosis or experience a breach in confidentiality? If so, you may have a medical malpractice case on your hands. At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, L.L.P., we evaluate your circumstances to determine whether a doctor’s negligence led to harm and damages.
REQUIREMENTS FOR CLAIMS
In order to show you are a victim of medical negligence and take valid legal action in Southington, Connecticut, you must demonstrate four basic elements:
- A physician-patient relationship existed: You hired a doctor and he or she agreed to see and treat you.
- You received subpar care: Your doctor was negligent or provided treatment that falls well below the accepted medical standard.
- Your doctor’s negligence caused you harm: An injury or death in your family was the direct result of a provider’s actions.
- The injury led to quantifiable damages: You experienced physical pain, emotional trauma, excessive medical bills or the loss of income due to the harm caused.
Our attorneys assist with documenting each of these requirements by gathering evidence and witness statements to show a causal connection.
