Unfortunately, all of us will be required to undergo medical treatment at some point in our lives. We place our trust in medical professionals’ skills, training, and education during that vulnerable time. Medical professionals are human and, like all of us, can be negligent in providing care. This negligence can sometimes lead to poor outcomes and devastating injury.

When medical malpractice or negligence occurs, the consequences can have a devastating effect on you and your family. Doctors, nurses, nursing home staff, and all other healthcare professionals have a duty to act reasonably and responsibly while upholding standards designed for patient safety. When medical professionals fail in these duties, our team of experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyers can help you seek the justice you deserve.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is negligence by a medical professional that causes harm to a patient. It often occurs when a medical professional’s actions fall outside the standard of care widely accepted by similarly situated medical professionals. Medical professionals can include doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, radiologists, dentists, surgeons, nursing home staff, and other practitioners.

Medical negligence claims are often very complex and involve thousands of pages of medical records.

Proving liability in a medical negligence case is challenging, time-consuming, and costly. Specific laws govern medical negligence claims, most of which make successfully pursuing a medical negligence claim an uphill battle for the patient and their families.
