Connecticut Medical Malpractice Lawyers
At some point in every person's lifetime there is a need to seek medical care from a doctor, nurse or other health care provider. Unfortunately medical care is sometimes incompetent, resulting in injury to thousands of people every year as a result of preventable medical errors.
Medical malpractice arises from simple negligence on the part of the health care provider. Because of the unique vulnerability of the person seeking care which by its nature is highly invasive, medical incompetency can result in catastrophic disability and death.
Medical malpractice cases are difficult to prove and are always among the most vigorously defended cases by competent defense lawyers. As a result a medical malpractice lawsuit requires a law firm with a track record in this area with access to medical experts and the ability to vigorously advocate complex issues of law and fact.
