Dermatology Malpractice: A few months ago, my doctor, who is not a dermatologist, recommended that I have some small marks removed from my face. The doctor ended up removing the marks three months ago, but I still have major burns on my face. Can I sue the doctor?

To have a successful Virginia medical malpractice case, you would have to show that the doctor failed to provide a standard of care and that this negligence caused damages.  A qualified expert will be able to make the determination whether or not your doctor’s treatment fell below this standard of care.

Medical malpractice cases are difficult to win and usually are not worth pursuing unless the damages were substantial.  However, it doesn’t hurt to seek the advice of a Virginia medical malpractice attorney who will be able to explain your options.
