Doctors and other health care professionals are expected to deliver treatment that meets the accepted standard of care. When a doctor’s treatment falls below the accepted standard, serious injuries can result. As an initial matter, it is important to determine the appropriate standard of care that applies. Health care providers are expected to provide care with the same degree of competence as a group of providers in the same area would provide when treating patients with the same conditions. They are not expected to be perfect and are not compared to the standards expected of doctors in other locations. This means that the accepted standard of care can vary. Once the standard of care is determined, a medical expert will need to review the records to determine whether the treatment that was provided met or violated the standard of care. If it fell below the accepted standard in your case, you might be entitled to pursue a medical malpractice claim. We can investigate your case and determine whether medical malpractice might have occurred.
The attorneys at Raynes & Lawn have long advocated for sexual abuse victims and their families. Each year, thousands of children are victimized by sexual predators in the U.S. We strongly believe that sexual predators and the institutions that negligently failed to protect the children in their care should be held accountable for their wrongful actions. The perpetrators of sexual abuse are frequently people who are known and trusted by the children and their parents, including teachers, coaches, pastors, counselors, and others. These predators take advantage of their statuses to victimize children.
Our civil sexual abuse attorneys always work with counselors who are trained in counseling children who have been abused and identifying signs of sexual abuse. We are compassionate and treat each client with the care and respect that he or she deserves. Through our representation, we work to expose institutions and sexual predators for what they are, deter future similar conduct, and recover maximal damages for our clients.
