Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other medical professional fails to apply the appropriate standard of care, resulting in serious harm to a patient.
A bad result alone does not mean that medical malpractice has taken place. All medical procedures come with a certain amount of risk, and bad results can happen even if everything is done correctly. In order to pursue a medical malpractice claim, there must not only be evidence of a bad result, but reason to believe that a doctor or other medical professional did something wrong. The error could be anything from failing to conduct the appropriate tests to failing to make proper notes to mixing up documentation to providing the wrong medicine.
If you believe that you or a loved one was the victim of medical negligence, you should discuss your case with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. These are often considered among the most challenging of all personal injury claims due to tough laws, technical complexities involved and opponents who are willing to fight to protect their careers.Decades of Experience Holding Medical Professionals Accountable
