Personal Injury Attorneys with Years of Experience Helping People Injured by Medical Malpractice
Injuries from medical malpractice can be devastating, and these types of claims are very challenging to handle. An experienced personal injury legal team is a must.
Medical malpractice cases arise when a patient is harmed by a doctor or nurse (or other medical professional) who fails to provide proper health care treatment.
Keep in mind that just because a doctor made a mistake or a patient was unhappy with a course of treatment or its outcome, that doesn’t mean malpractice necessarily occurred. In order to meet the legal definition of medical malpractice, the doctor or medical provider must have been negligent in some way — meaning the doctor was not reasonably skillful or competent, and that incompetence harmed the patient.
Common forms of medical malpractice include:
- Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis
- Childbirth Injuries and Negligent prenatal care
- Medication Errors
- Anesthesia Errors
- Surgery Errors
Determining if someone has a valid medical malpractice claim is difficult, as the legal definition of malpractice is strict.
