Medical Malpractice Claims
Most health-care providers are dedicated to helping the sick and afflicted get better. But sometimes they make mistakes. When that happens, the effects can be devastating. Unfortunately, thousands of people die each year from medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice is a claim against a health-care provider for an alleged mistake or negligence. If you were injured because a health-care provider did not follow the “standard of care,” you may have a claim for medical malpractice. The “standard of care” is determined through a comparison with other professionals in the same medical field and area.
Just because there was a bad medical outcome from treatment does not mean that someone committed medical malpractice. The practice of medicine is an art, and health-care providers are given discretion to treat patients how they see best within the standard of care.
