Birmingham, Alabama, Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Americans place a great deal of trust in doctors. They trust them with their own health and with the health of loved ones. So, when a doctor is negligent and causes an injury or fails to properly treat an illness, it can feel like a betrayal of trust. At the Birmingham, Alabama, law offices of Burge & Burge, we hold doctors and hospitals accountable for the damage they cause.
When a doctor has been negligent, he or she has failed to live up to the standard of care. The idea of the standard of care is simple: doctors have a duty to act in a way that is recognized as acceptable and appropriate by other similar healthcare providers. If your doctor fails to do this and the failure causes an injury or aggravates an illness, they can be held responsible for any resulting injury or death.
