How do I know if my case qualifies as medical malpractice?
You must have an established doctor-patient relationship with the medical provider. In other words, your doctor must have been legally bound to treat you.
The doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff must have failed to perform their duties to an accepted standard of care.
The medical provider's negligent actions or wrongdoing must have directly caused injury or death.
The injuries incurred by their negligent actions must have resulted in losses, including financial and emotional damages.
John Hopkins University reported in 2016 that medical errors were the third most common cause of death in the United States.

If you or a loved one has been adversely affected by a hospital error, you can hold the hospital liable. The lawyers at Moody Law will work tirelessly for your case to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Our goal is to have you focus on recovering while we focus on winning your case.
At Moody Law, we understand how devastating a birth injury can be to a family. If your child has suffered a birth injury, such as one that causes cerebral palsy or Erb's Palsy, or an injury related to shoulder dystocia, a medical malpractice lawyer from our firm can help. Many birth injuries result in permanent disabilities that require long-term medical care.
Many emergency rooms are understaffed by overworked physicians and inexperienced nurses, which can often lead to tragedy. If the negligent actions of an emergency care provider caused you to suffer or led to the death of a loved one, we will work to ensure the liable parties are held responsible for their actions.
If a doctor's carelessness causes a patient to be injured, the doctor can be held liable for medical malpractice. Hospitals are responsible for hiring qualified and competent doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists and medical technicians. In instances of doctor neglect, it may be possible to hold the hospital liable.
The effects can be devastating if an anesthesiologist administers an incorrect dosage of sedative or fails to closely monitor a patient who is under anesthesia. If a loved one has been injured or suffered a wrongful death as a result of an anesthesia error, we can assist you in seeking just restitution.
Drugs can pose a significant risk to the health of an individual if they are incorrectly prescribed. Patients place their well-being in the hands of doctors when they seek medical attention. If a doctor fails in his or her duty and prescribes an injurious drug, the victim has legal recourse.
