Medical Malpractice Claims
Malpractice occurs when your doctor, nurse or other medical staff deviates from best practices for their specific field of medicine or the standard operating procedure of the facility or practice. Health care providers have an moral, ethical and even legal obligation to give every patient proper and safe treatment. Similar standards hold true for nursing homes too.
Medical Malpractice can often result in catastrophic injuries that can leave a patient impacted for the rest of their life. At Mager Parúas, we fight to protect the rights of medical malpractice victims and work vigorously to get them the compensation that they deserve. The negligent health care provider may owe you damages including your medical costs, future medical treatments and therapies, pain and suffering, mental anguish, long-term rehabilitation, and even lost wages.
