We trust our doctors, nurses, OBGYNs, and other healthcare professionals to deliver the highest levels of patient care. They’re the experts, after all. Unfortunately, the phrase to err is human also applies to these individuals. When medical professionals fail to provide the acceptable standard of care and it results in a patient's injury, we believe that patient and their family deserves to receive compensation and justice.
