Medical malpractice happens when a medical professional does something that a reasonably careful doctor in the same circumstances would not do OR fails to do something that a reasonably careful doctor in the same circumstances would do, resulting in injury to the patient. In the legal world, this is referred to as as a medical professional “deviating from the standard of medical care.” Often and tragically, these acts or omission can results in a patient’s severe injury or even death. Doctors and other medical professionals, hospitals, clinics and other healthcare providers can be held responsible in these cases with the help of an experienced medical malpractice attorney.

What facts do I need to prove in a Medical Malpractice Case?
You must prove that the medical professional treating you acted negligently. To do this, you must show through evidence that the healthcare provider did not exercise the appropriate care in providing treatment. Medical expert testimony is almost always required for this.
Next, you must prove that the patient sustained substantial injuries that were suffered BECAUSE of the medical professional’s failure to exercise the appropriate care in providing treatment.
Who can I sue for medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice lawsuits can be brought against any medical professional, hospital, nurse, clinic or other healthcare provider who was involved in treating you when their deviation from the standard of care caused your injury.
