What is Medical Malpractice?
 
Medical malpractice is a departure from good and accepted medical practice resulting in injury to the patient.

Medical malpractice is the result of a health care provider such as a physician, hospital or other healthcare professional or institution, failing to give a patient treatment that meets a generally accepted standard of care resulting in an injury to the patient.

Medical malpractice may not be obvious to the average person. As part of a new client's consultation, a thorough review and analysis is always done to identify whether or not medical malpractice has taken place.
 
There are many different types of medical malpractice:

  • Wrongful Death
  • Severe Birth Injuries - Cerebral Palsy, Erb's Palsy, Shoulder Dystocia
  • Failure to diagnose and treat medical conditions properly
  • Failure to diagnose cancers such as breast cancer, prostate or colon cancer
  • Surgical errors
