Medical malpractice is a serious issue in the United States. The law states that doctors are held to a higher standard of care when practicing medicine than a layman would in conducting his daily affairs. This is most likely because doctors’ patients are very vulnerable when seeking doctors’ opinions. As a result, when a doctor fails to maintain that heightened standard of care, the consequences can be disastrous. Scott & Wallace LLP handles medical malpractice cases for its clients. The legal profession serves as a check on accountability in the medical profession, and Scott & Wallace LLP is here to represent your interests in the event that you are harmed by your medical caregiver.
Similarly, if you or a loved one has entrusted your care taking to a nursing home or some other living assistance program, and an injury has occurred because of neglect or lack of care, we can help.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a caregiver, it is important that you contact us immediately. Due to statute of limitations or “periods of prescription” (i.e., how long you have to file your medical malpractice lawsuit), you only have a short period of time to file a case. It is important that you contact Scott & Wallace LLP immediately, so that we can research your medical malpractice case to let you know the best way to proceed.
At Scott & Wallace, we welcome the opportunity to discuss your case with you. Don’t let the complexity of the medical field make you a victim of negligence. Contact us today for a free consultation in North Florida or Southwest Georgia.
