The importance of medical malpractice

By: Darrell Castle

Every professional needs some accoubability in his or her practice, and this is especially true for doctors. Why? Because doctors hold their patients’ lives and well-being in their hands with the decisions they make and the procedures they perform.


That’s where attorneys come in. When medical professionals are negligent, causing harm and suffering to their patients, they face the risk of being sued for medical malpractice.

This is why doctors and hospitals carry medical malpractice insurance.

When a victim sues a doctor for medical malpractice, it’s important to know what he or she is saying. He or she’s claiming said doctor acted outside the standard of care and that any other reasonable doctor would’ve acted differently. This claim must be backed by multiple expert testimonies from medical professionals familiar with the local standard of care.

No one just up and wants to sue a doctor. Doctors make mistakes just like every other human does, but their mistakes can be a lot more costly than the average human’s. Their mistakes can cause agonizing pain and suffering. Their mistakes can disable people. Their mistakes can turn independent people into dependent people – and if you’re independent, then you know how hard of a transition that can be.

This is why medical malpractice attorneys do what they do – or at least that’s the case here at Darrell Castle & Associates.
