Medical malpractice lawyers explain in this series of video what people need to know if they suspect an injury was sustained due to a surgical error, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose cancer and more.
The definition of medical malpractice is when a health care professional fails to adhere to the standard of care when treating a patient, and that patient suffers a preventable injury or death as a result. Doctors and medical specialists will assist in these types of cases to determine what the standard of care is in that situation, and whether the standard of care was met.
A medical malpractice lawsuit can be very complex, involving a thorough investigation before the case is even filed to determine if it has merit. Not all poor outcomes of surgery or medications constitute medical malpractice; choose a law firm with a proven track record of success in cases involving medical error.
