What is Medical Malpractice?

We all have heard this term, but how exactly is it defined?  Many bad outcomes from surgery are just bad luck.  For a physician or hospital to be liable for medical malpractice, the medical care must fall below the reasonable "standard of care."  This is called "medical negligence."  (Hospitals are liable for everyone they hire, or certify, to work within their walls.)  The standard of care must be established by a medical expert knowledgeable in that particular field.  Also, your medical care must proceed with your "informed consent."  For example, performing a surgery without your informed consent is also medical malpractice.  Finally, it is malpractice for a physician to make a very specific promise, and then break that promise.

There are many twists and turns in most potential medical malpractice cases.  The journey may be a long one, but the rewards may be substantial.  You need an experienced attorney on your side.  Attorney Craig Mason is just such a medical malpractice attorney in Eastern Washington.  Contact Craig Mason today at (509) 443-3681 and find out how he can help you.

Planning Child Custody after Divorce.

Many divorced parents are facing the task of raising one or more of the lives that they created, to adulthood.  While the divorced parents may even be relieved that the union has ended, the children are often feeling loss, and even more so feeling the pains of uncertainty.  We know your children are the most important people in your lives.

Co-parenting is the official policy of Washington State.  Craig Mason will work to facilitate that policy, and he defends your right to parent if it is under attack.  Mr. Mason will use mediation, and the courts when necessary, to work out cooperative parenting.

However, sometimes cooperation fails.  If one of parents has become harmful to a child, whether through physical abuse or parental alienation, then a psychological evaluation may be in order for that harmful spouse.  In some cases co-parenting may not be the best suggestion, and a supervised visitation schedule may be more appropriate.  This is why it is important to hire a family lawyer in Spokane who knows how to aggressively fight for the proper evaluation of your former spouse, and of any harm that spouse is causing.

Craig Mason is just such an attorney.  If the other parent is trying to unjustifiably limit your time, or if significant restrictions on that parent are actually merited by the facts, Attorney Mason will fight for your right to discover that.  The main focus of course is co-parenting, but you need a strong Eastern Washington divorce lawyer on your team.  Contact Craig Mason today at (509) 443-3681 and find out how he can help you.
