Standing With Medical Malpractice Victims
When we go to the hospital for help, we are often putting our very lives in their hands. Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals have a duty to protect and care for their patients. When they fail that duty and cause a patient to suffer serious injuries, they need to be held accountable with swift legal action.
At Mattoch & Kirley, LLLC, we know the challenges of taking on hospitals and their major legal and insurance teams in a medical malpractice claim. We are proud to be able to fight for the people of Hawai’i, and we are ready to act as your legal representation through your medical malpractice claims.
What Qualifies As Medical Malpractice?
In many cases, victims of medical malpractice are not even aware they suffered from it. There are four key elements necessary to pursue a medical malpractice claim:
- Medical duty to treat a patient
- A breach of that duty
- The injuries resulting from that breach
- The damages that come from the breach of duty
While these factors must be present in any medical malpractice claim, malpractice can occur in many different ways.
