Medical Malpractice and Medical Neglect
Most doctors, medical professionals and hospitals work hard to meet the needs and medical requirements of their patients. Occasionally, however, a doctor or a hospital makes a mistake that can result in serious and life-altering injuries for the patient. Sometimes a wrongful death can occur.
While not every medical failure is a result of negligence or medical malpractice, it takes an experienced medical malpractice attorney to determine if a hospital or doctor failed to provide an acceptable standard of care. A lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates in Salt Lake City can determine your legal option, and whether or not you have a good medical malpractice claim.
