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 the ordinary reasonable care owed by a lay person in conducting his or her 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 this heightened standard of care, the consequences can be disastrous. At Scott & Wallace, we handle medical malpractice cases for our clients. The legal profession serves as a check on accountability in the medical profession, and Scott & Wallace is here to represent your interests in the event that you are harmed by your medical provider.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a medical provider, it is important that you contact us immediately.

It is important that you contact Scott & Wallace immediately so that we can timely research your potential medical malpractice case and let you know the best way to proceed.
