Medical negligence, or malpractice, occurs when a health care provider fails to act in accordance with accepted standards of medical care, and that failure results in injury to the patient. Injuries suffered as a result of medical malpractice can be very severe, and can even cause permanent disability or death.
Medical malpractice cases may involve failure to diagnose cancer, prescribing inappropriate medication, failing to obtain a patient’s informed consent before subjecting them to treatment, using an outdated surgical technique, failing to diagnose a condition, or failing to respond timely to an emergency.
Medical malpractice cases are subject to very strict legal standards, so it is important to discuss your potential case with an experienced law firm that knows the intricacies of the law. There are stringent time requirements, expert witness requirements, mandatory pre-filing, and other requirements that only skilled lawyers can navigate successfully.
