Were You a Victim of Medical Malpractice?

Medical treatment can lead to serious side effects, invasive treatments, and significant expense, but trust in health care providers motivates patients to complete even the most difficult treatment protocols with the hope that their conditions will improve. When treatment fails to result in the outcome you expected, you may have questions about your doctor’s decisions.

Medical treatment sometimes fails to cure a condition or remedy symptoms as expected, but not all negative outcomes amount to medical malpractice. The questions posed by the medical malpractice quiz below can provide preliminary insights into whether your case qualifies as medical malpractice. 

Please note that this quiz is for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for legal advice from a licensed attorney. If your answers to our quiz point to a potential medical malpractice claim, a medical malpractice lawyer at our law firm can review your case in detail and advise you whether you have grounds to file a medical malpractice claim.

A breach of duty in medical malpractice cases occurs when a doctor strays from the established standard of care. 

Our seasoned medical malpractice lawyers can compare your health care provider’s actions to the reasonable standard of care and answer the following questions:

If we determine that the answer to all of these questions is yes, we may advise you to move forward with a medical malpractice claim.
