Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Cedar Rapids, Iowa
We help victims recover compensation
A special relationship exists between physicians and their patients. Physicians owe their patients a duty to provide a certain standard of care, using at least the level of skill, care and diligence that is generally exercised by fellow practitioners in the medical professions. It is considered medical malpractice when a medical professional breaches that duty through negligence or carelessness and causes injury to a patient. Medical malpractice victims may recover compensation for their injuries, including past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost income.
