Medical Malpractice Attorney Omaha, NE. Randy Shanks

Medical negligence is the third leading cause of death within the nation, right after heart disease and cancer. Medical malpractice can happen when a facility or health care provider chooses to disobey the standard of care, which is recognized in the treatment of a patient. A standard of care is what a competent medical professional provider would or would not do under identical circumstances. It essentially tells use whether the provider you are seeing was negligent.

Failure to Warn of Known Risks: Practitioners have a duty to warn their patients of any risks for procedures and/or prescriptions. If the doctor is not providing patients with information that might have convinced them to decide against a procedure, the doctor may be liable for medical malpractice in the event that the patient suffers and injury by the procedure or prescription.
