What is medical malpractice?

Patients put their health in the hands of doctors every day. When something goes wrong as a result of a doctor’s or staff’s negligence, it can lead to injury and sometimes death. When this happens, people are sometimes hesitant to question the care they received and even more hesitant to hire an attorney to investigate. It is imperative, however, to investigate and determine whether a loved one was injured as a result of the negligence of a healthcare provider.

Medical Malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to comply with the standard of care for their profession and that failure results in a patient’s injury or death.
