Medical malpractice is an injury or death that is caused by a healthcare professional due to his or her negligence. The area of medicine requires a high standard of care. The failure of the institution or healthcare professional
to meet these standards renders that entity negligent.
An institution or healthcare professional’s failure to treat you with the quality of care that is required of them may constitute medical malpractice. If you believe that you or someone you know has fallen victim to medical malpractice, you need to be advised of your rights.
Medical malpractice can occur in all areas of medicine. However, healthcare institutions are good at keeping things quiet. Unless you are present in the environment and or know the protocol it is unlikely that you would be
alarmed. Thus, having an attorney that knows hospital protocol and medical terminology will assist you in spotting and working the claim.
