What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical Malpractice results from the negligence of medical professionals that causes a patient to sustain injuries or death. Medical malpractice lawsuits seek to recover compensation for the injured patient and shed light on misconduct to protect future patients from harm. In order to meet the standard for medical malpractice, an injured party must show that a healthcare provider failed to provide a reasonable standard of care resulting in their harm.
Individuals injured by medical malpractice may be entitled to damages such as compensation for their:
- Medical bills
- Future treatment
- Lost wages
- Future loss of earning capacity
- Other injury-related losses
We often represent individuals injured when medical professionals fail to properly treat and diagnose, hospitals cause infections, or serious surgical errors occur.
