Medical Malpractice


Patients have the right to expect a reasonable level of care when seeing a medical practitioner or entering a health care facility for treatment.  When potentially deadly or life-changing injuries occur, they can alter the course of your future and result in substantial loss of income or quality of life.  It is vital to consult an attorney as soon as possible if you or a loved one is suffering because of malpractice in Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma City medical malpractice attorneys of the Van Meter Law Firm provide dependable, compassionate legal assistance to severely injured parties.  We help determine if your injuries are grounds for an Oklahoma City medical malpractice case.

What is medical malpractice?

Simply put, medical malpractice in Oklahoma City occurs when any healthcare professional or facility falls below what is considered a reasonable standard of care.  Perpetrators of medical malpractice may be guilty of recklessness or negligence in the course of providing treatment, or they may not have done what a competent and knowledgeable provider would have done in a similar situation.  Each case of malpractice in Oklahoma City is different and unique, so discussing the details with the Van Meter Law Firm is the best way to determine if you have viable grounds for a lawsuit.

Why should I contact an attorney for Oklahoma City malpractice?

In a perfect world, you would be able to show the court how your healthcare provider had harmed you, and collect the compensation you need from the guilty party.  Unfortunately, it is not always that easy. Oklahoma City medical malpractice is rarely a clear-cut or simple affair.  The Van Meter Law Firm provides the skilled legal representation you need to prove not only that Oklahoma City malpractice occurred, but that you are entitled to the amount of compensation for which you are asking.
