Imagine waking up from surgery to discover your healthy right leg had been amputated and your gangrenous left one still attached. Or, months after your doctor told you the lump in your breast was just a benign cyst, you discover it is really cancer and has now advanced to a stage requiring radical treatment. Both of these scenarios have happened. In fact, hundreds of thousands of people are injured every year due to medical malpractice. Annually, more than 250,000 people die as a result of their injuries. Should you face any form of medical malpractice or need to file a wrongful death lawsuit, our attorneys at the Nordyke Law Offices are prepared to fight aggressively for the justice to which you are entitled.

Medical malpractice occurs when healthcare providers cause harm to patients by failing to comply with the required standard of care in the community in which they practice. The "standard of care" is determined by experts who are medical providers in the same field of medicine as the negligent or reckless provider who caused your injury. Experts review the medical records and determine if the care provided complied with the same type of care provided by other professionals in the same community who have similar training.
These elements may be easy to prove in a case as blatant as cutting off the wrong limb. In other situations, however, the case may be more subtle, and these four elements more difficult to prove. Our Butler medical malpractice lawyers at the Nordyke Law Offices, having tried medical malpractice cases for over 30 years, know what it takes to prove your case.
