How a New Hampshire Medical Malpractice Attorney Can Help You With Your Claim 

New Hampshire medical malpractice is receiving negligent care that is opposing the set standard of care in the medical profession. Every patient that requires care is entitled to quality treatment and may take legal action if they are harmed due to inadequate treatment or supervision. An adequate standard of care is defined by generally accepted practices and procedures performed by medical professionals in the same location when treating patients of similar or identical medical conditions or illnesses. 

Medical malpractice cases are generally complex and require the skilled representation of a New Hampshire medical malpractice lawyer. An experienced medical negligence attorney will need to uncover persuasive, tangible evidence in order to uphold your claim of medical negligence and inadequate standards of care under a medical professional’s supervision. Four elements must be proven in order to have a successful medical malpractice claim:

  • A relationship existed between doctor and patient
  • The medical professional was negligent
  • This negligence directly caused your injuries
  • The injury led to specific damages and losses  

If you suspect you were injured due to New Hampshire medical malpractice, consult a skilled medical malpractice lawyer for a proper evaluation of your case. Handling medical negligence cases alone can be overwhelming and confusing. Rely on the seasoned Sweeney Merrigan personal injury attorneys to make the process as simple as possible and fight for the fair compensation you deserve.

When the wrong diagnosis or treatment is administered to a patient, medical professionals may also be liable for medical malpractice. This type of negligence can result in severe, lifelong harm to the patient. Had the doctor provided proper treatment, in instances of conditions being time-sensitive, patients could have been cured or saved had proper treatment been provided.
