In most Harvey motor vehicle accidents, the injured party must provide that the defendant was negligent in order to obtain compensation for any injuries or damages, such as lost income and medical bills. The injured party, or plaintiff, must show that the defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of both the accident and the plaintiff’s injuries.

Medical malpractice is when a doctor or other medical professional injures a patient due to negligence. When you seek medical care, there is an expectation that you will be treated according to established standards of practice. When your care deviates from these standards and results in injury, you can sue for medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can be either a personal injury or wrongful death case. These cases can be both challenging and costly to prove. It’s important to choose a law firm with knowledge, experience and resources to advocate on your behalf.
