Protecting The Rights Of Injured Patients

What is Medical Malpractice?

When you seek medical treatment for yourself or a family member, you trust that the doctor or hospital will provide you with the right answers and care needed. However, some doctors and medical facilities fail in this responsibility through negligence or mistakes. If you or a family member has been the victim of errors made by medical staff, you have the right to seek financial compensation for the damages caused. This is referred to as medical malpractice and includes personal injury claims as well as claims of wrongful death if the malpractice resulted in the loss of a loved one.

Medical malpractice can be complicated as you must prove that the medical facility or staff intentionally or negligently acted in a manner which caused harm. A hospital may have failed to follow up on a test that showed you had an early stage of lung cancer or a nurse’s failure to monitor your condition and administer the appropriate medication led to your baby’s cerebral palsy.
