What Is Medical Malpractice?
Experiencing a negative result from your medical care does not necessarily mean that malpractice was involved. Medical malpractice (also called medical negligence) occurs when:
- A doctor owes a duty of care to a patient.
- The doctor deviated from the expected standard of care.
- This resulted in an illness or injury to the patient.
Proving malpractice claims is very difficult, so you will need an experienced team with a record of proven successes. Our team understands medical malpractice claims inside and out. We know how to examine your medical records and gather the other evidence needed to put together your case.
