What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical Malpractice is an act or omission by a health care provider which deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and which causes injury to the patient. Simply put, medical malpractice is professional negligence (by a healthcare provider) that causes an injury.

Why is a Medical Malpractice Lawyer needed for medical mistakes?

Medical Malpractice is a doctor’s failure to exercise the degree of care and skill that a physician or surgeon of the same medical specialty would use under similar circumstances. A lawyer that knows about medical problems and medical laws is needed to help a claim reach the courts in the fastest, accurate, and most complete way possible. A medical malpractice lawyer will work with the hospital system and legal system to find out what your rights and legal options are. While you or someone you know gets better or recovers from a medical mistake or injury, the medical malpractice attorney fights for your legal rights.
