Elmira Medical Malpractice Attorneys
When you receive treatment from a hospital or doctor, you expect that you will be cared for in a professional and competent manner. You place your health, and often your life, in the hands of others. In the majority of cases, medical professionals are fully qualified, experienced, and provide excellent treatment. However, even the most experienced professionals sometimes make mistakes that result in serious injury or even death. This may be medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is a form of negligence where an injury results from the failure of a professional or medical facility to exercise care, skills, or diligence in performing a duty. At Proudfoot Law Firm, we have experience handling medical malpractice cases, both in and out of court. We have received favorable jury verdicts and settlements against both hospitals and physicians.
