What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs whenever a medical professional or healthcare facility has failed to meet the standard of care that is set forth by the medical community which results in injury or death. Medical malpractice can take place in many forms, ranging from failure to diagnosis a disease, illness, or infection, wrong site surgery, birth injury, nursing home abuse and neglect, and more.
To succeed in a medical malpractice claim, you must show not only that you or a loved one has been injured, but that the injury was the direct result of medical negligence by a healthcare professional or facility.
What options do I have if I have been the victim of medical malpractice?
We trust medical professionals and expect that when we receive care, that care will meet the legally required quality standards. When the treatment that healthcare professionals provide fails to meet expected and required standard of care and patients are injured or killed as a result, this means that medical malpractice may have occurred. If a patient or resident has experienced an injury or death due to medical malpractice, then the victim and their families deserve to be compensated for their pain and suffering, medical bills, and future expenses.
There is a wide variety of medical professionals and facilities who provide substandard care that, in turn, leads to medical malpractice. These can include: Doctors, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Nursing Assistants, Hospitals, Surgery Centers, Midwives, Medical Spas, Urgent and Walk-in Care Facilities, Psychologists, Chiropractors, Anesthesiologists, Nurse Anesthetists, Physical Therapists, and Lab Technicians, among others.
