Generally speaking medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider provides treatment that falls below the accepted standard of care in the medical community, putting the patient at risk of injury or death. In general, if a healthcare provider fails to act when others with similar training would have, they may be liable for any resulting injuries or death.
If you or a loved one believe you were injured as a result of medical malpractice, our firm may be able to file a claim against the doctor, nurse, hospital, or healthcare provider who was negligent in causing the injury.
Medical malpractice lawsuits differ from other personal injury cases because they involve two intertwining areas of expertise: law and medicine. These cases are inherently complex and require the attention and skill of an attorney who is well-versed in both of these areas.
