Medical Profession has long subscribed to a body of ethical statements developed primarily for the benefit of the patient. In recent times the self-regulatory standards in the profession have shown a decline and this can be attributed to the over whelming impact of commercialisation of the sector.
Malpractice occurs when a health care provider deviates from the recognised medical standard of care in the treatment of a patient. However, for a case to be viable, a plaintiff must show that harm directly resulted from the negligence. Most medical malpractice lawsuits involve considerable harm or disability resulting in lost income, significant past and future medical bills, pain, suffering, and hardship.
However, the development of this sector has been incomplete and uneven. Highly skilled doctors get sued over frivlous issues and doctors who make lots of mistakes but are spared the trouble. At the same time, the overwhelming number of people who suffer an injury due to the negligence of a doctor never file a malpractice lawsuit at all.
At Kashyap and Kashyap, we believe in the pursuit of justice for all parties and uphold this in the advocacy, counsel and representation of our clients. We represent the patients who are at the receiving end of an act of medical negligence by the medical practitioner or hospitals, and we also represent the doctors and healthcare institutions that are victims of malicious suits.
