Mississippi Medical Malpractice Attorney
Need Experienced, Reliable Legal Help?
Our Mississippi Lawyer Can Help!
When you visit a medical facility, you expect the doctors, nurses, and
other staff members who help you to have the knowledge and skills necessary
to provide a certain standard of care. Medical staff members must be experienced
and professional because any mistakes they make could lead to serious
injury or even death. If a medical facility or practitioner engages in
a doctor-patient with either you or your loved one, they should be held
responsible for any injuries caused by inexcusable errors or acts of negligence.
At Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyers, P.A., we can investigate
the circumstances of your injury and work to hold the negligent parties
accountable for any damage they caused you or your family. With over 30
years of legal experience behind us, you can rest easy knowing your case
is in good hands.

Establishing a Medical Malpractice Claim
If you were injured due to the negligence or mistakes of a medical professional
or medical care facility, a few things must be true in order for your
situation to qualify for a medical malpractice claim.
There Existed a Legal Duty: The potential claimant must establish that the medical professional who
caused harm had a doctor-patient relationship with the harmed individual.
Breach of Legal Duty: The medical professional must have failed to provide competent care to
the patient who was harmed. This means the doctor, nurse, etc. must have
failed to act in a way that any other qualified medical professional would
have under the same circumstances.
The Breach of Duty Caused Harm: It must be proven that the error or negligence the medical professional
committed caused harm to the patient. In other words, it was the doctor’s
mistake, and not some other factor, that caused the injury in question.
Injury or Damages Existed: Injuries or other damages must exist. These injuries can be physical or
mental, and can also include financial damages.
