Protecting the Rights of the Injured & Disabled
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional provides care to a patient that falls below the standard of practice in the medical community. This negligent or reckless conduct of the medical professional must lead to the injury or death of the patient, or the worsening of a patient’s condition.
In these cases, the defendant is the provider of medical care. Although a medical provider is usually a physician, the term may also be applied to include dentists and therapists, as well as nurses and medical technicians. Often, a claim may be brought against the hospital, clinic, or other organization that employs or oversees the work of that medical provider.
There are an infinite number of situations where a doctor’s error in diagnosis, failure to act, or other medical error can lead to severe injury to his or her patient. This is negligence and can lead to severe, life altering injury or death.
