What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a professional healthcare provider, doctor, nurse, technician fails to provide a patient with proper care. So if a medical professional didn’t provide the standard of care that other professionals would provide in the same circumstances, they may be liable for any harm caused.
A doctor or medical profession in the same field must sign an affidavit stating that medical negligence has in fact occurred. A patient may then file a medical malpractice claim to receive compensation for the losses caused by the medical professional’s negligent behavior.
What Should I Do If I Think I Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?
If you believe you suffered from medical malpractice of a medical provider, it is critical that you speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
