The majority of nurses, physicians and health care providers are educated, well-trained individuals that have honorably accepted an extraordinary challenge to care for ill patients and their families. These unselfish professionals offer local treatment in some of the best hospitals in the country. Patients are truly fortunate to have access to these skilled professionals and the advanced technology that is available at some of these health institutions.
At the Ahmad & Associates we respect the service and commitment of these dedicated professionals. We do not believe that nurses, physicians and hospitals should have their medical practice interrupted by frivolous lawsuits. However, we also firmly believe that vigorously pursuing meritorious cases, as well as refusing to participate in frivolous cases, is essential to protecting patients’ rights, establishing improved policies and preserving the integrity of the medical profession.
To prevail in a claim based on medical negligence (often referred to as medical malpractice) the patient must prove that a health care provider deviated from the prevailing professional standard of care and proximately caused injury to the patient. The failure of a health care provider to offer reasonable care to a patient may result in tragic and catastrophic injury such as paralysis, brain injury or wrongful death.
