What is medical malpractice?

 Medical malpractice impacts the lives of thousands of Americans each year. According to the American Medical Association, 98,000 people a year are killed by preventable medical errors in the United States, which is about three times the amount of deaths caused by traffic accidents each year.

If after a doctor visit you believe a doctor, nurse, technician, anesthesiologist or other medical professional has caused additional damage or harm you may be eligible to file a claim for medical malpractice. Harm that is caused by procedural or surgical mistakes or the absence of proper care or technique may be covered by medical malpractice.

How do I know if it is a medical malpractice case?

All medical professionals are expected to maintain a specific standard of care when administering services to a patient. When a medical professional fails to use reasonable standards of care and causes additional harm to a patient it may be a medical malpractice case.
