Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice covers a variety of circumstances where a health care provider, hospital, clinic, nursing home, pharmacist, laboratory, or other health care related entity makes a mistake that causes harm. Medical malpractice or medical negligence is a broad subject that also includes failure to provide Informed Consent, which does not require proof of injury. 

Typically, actions for Medical Malpractice are brought against a doctor for failure to properly diagnose and/or properly treat a condition.  The actions must be shown to be below the standard of care for similarly situated health care providers of that specialty.  The most notorious cases involve amputation of the wrong limb or removal of a healthy organ, performance of unnecessary surgery for financial gain, prescription of medically unnecessary drugs, treatment or durable medical equipment for monetary gain or other improper reasons, severing of a nerve during surgery due to poor surgical abilities, and failure to inform a patient of a diagnosis or making an improper diagnosis.  Medical professionals have a duty to disclose their lack of expertise to handle a condition and refer you to a specialist qualified to assume your care.

The Washington state legislature recently passed new Medical Malpractice legislation that changes the requirements for bringing a medical negligence action in state court.  The attorneys of Margullis Luedtke & Ray, PLLC and paralegal staff are experienced in handling medical negligence cases under this new law. We are available to investigate the particular circumstances of your case using experts knowledgeable in all fields of health care to certify that your case is meritorious.
