Medical Negligence Lawyer Salt Lake City UT
It isn’t always easy to know whether a medical provider’s actions or inactions have made a patient’s medical challenges worse than they had to be. What is clear is that medical mistakes are a truly significant source of suffering in the United States. According to Johns Hopkins patient safety experts, medical errors are the third leading cause of death in America. These experts indicate that just shy of 10 percent of all deaths in the U.S. are caused by medical errors.
Medical errors are a form of medical negligence or medical malpractice. Generally speaking, a medical provider—be they doctor, nurse, technician, pharmacist, or even a medical facility such as a hospital—is negligent when they provide a patient with a level of care that is substandard when compared to the level of care ordinarily provided to patients in similar situations. If you have suffered physically for reasons that could be attributed to a medical mistake or another form of medical negligence, it is important to connect with an experienced Salt Lake City, UT medical negligence lawyer at Rasmussen & Miner to learn more about your rights and options under the law.

If you don’t know for sure whether a medical provider’s actions or inactions contributed to the harm you have suffered, that’s okay. Sometimes, it takes a focused investigation by skilled investigators to determine whether medical negligence has occurred. For obvious reasons, medical providers are not always willing to admit to substandard care practices on their own.
Do You Have Grounds Upon Which to File a Medical Negligence Claim?
Essentially, if a medical care provider owed you a “duty of care” under the law, breached that duty via conduct that was negligent, reckless, or intentionally harmful in nature, and you suffered physically as a result of that breach, you have grounds upon which to file a civil claim.
