Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other healthcare provider performs medical treatment that is below the standard of care and that treatment causes injuries. A medical doctor or other healthcare professional can also commit medical malpractice by failing to act when he or she should have. Examples of malpractice by a doctor or other healthcare provider include the failure of a doctor to properly monitor or recognize the signs of fetal distress during a delivery. Lack of proper monitoring or a failure to realize that you or the baby are in physical distress can have devastating consequences for you and your child. When the doctor, nurse or other healthcare provider does not recognize those signs and symptoms and you or your baby is injured, you deserve to be compensated for you and your baby's injuries.

Legal Malpractice
An attorney has a fiduciary duty of utmost care and loyalty to his or her client. You trust your attorney with some of your most personal information so that he or she can represent and advise you effectively and correctly. However, if the representation you receive is not up to professional standards, there is a chance you could lose a lot. An example of a legal malpractice claim occurs when an attorney incorrectly interprets a statute of limitations or fails to file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations. If an attorney commits legal malpractice, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your loss. Please contact the legal malpractice attorneys at Gilstrap & Associates, P.C. to discuss your case.
