What to Know About Neurology Malpractice Cases
Neurologists strive to provide patients with treatment that aligns with the highest standard of care. When negligence for these standards happens, certain nervous system injuries and brain injuries can occur. Due to the legal ramifications and subsequent medical costs, victims of neurological malpractice might feel cautious about how to navigate this new way of life.
If you or someone you love has been a victim of neurology malpractice and has questions regarding the case, just know that you're not alone. Some of the more common questions we hear from clients include:
