Doctors and other healthcare providers attend years of school and engage in extensive training because people rely on them to provide the best care possible. But what happens when they fail? Experienced medical malpractice attorneys will be able to help you determine if you have a case and what steps you should take to obtain justice.
Medical malpractice is any deviation or omission committed by a healthcare provider while rendering medical care to a patient. That deviation or omission from the accepted standard of care must then cause the patient to sustain an injury. (The injury can include damage to any part of the body or death) and the injuries sustained must then result in the patient incurring some form of damages.
When health care providers fail to uphold reasonable standards of care for their given profession or medical area, or when they exhibit negligence while treating patients, they can be held liable for the damages patients suffer. These damages can include (but are not limited to) medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
In short, medical malpractice is any mistake made by a doctor or other healthcare provider that could have been avoided had proper measures been taken to prevent it.
