Medical Malpractice / Professional Malpractice in Glenwood Springs, CO
Medical malpractice claims arise when a medical professional falls below the professional standard of care in his or her profession, thereby causing injuries to the patient. Non-medical professional malpractice can include claims for breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, mismanagement, errors in judgment, misconduct and carelessness. Professional malpractice cases can be brought against:
|•||Doctors / Nurses / Pharmacists
|•||Dentists / Dental Assistants|
|•||Engineers and Architects
|•||Real Estate Brokers and Real Estate Appraisers
|•||Plumbers and Electricians
Malpractice claims are important claims. When doctors, nurses, caregivers or dentists commit malpractice, patients can be killed, seriously injured, exposed to dangerous risks or permanently disabled or disfigured. When non-medical professionals commit malpractice, the people relying on their services can incur substantial damages for relying on bad advice, through no fault of their own.
Quality assessment of medical malpractice cases requires that the case be investigated early, as soon as possible, and that the attorney involved be familiar with the medical conditions involved. The Colorado legislature has imposed numerous deadlines that must be satisfied or a patient may lose his or her claims against the professional. Evidence of the malpractice often requires prompt action by the patient to preserve the ability to prove how the error occurred, and what his or her damages are or may become. Thus, it is important to act promptly, and to have an attorney who can quickly and competently assess potential claims.
