What Is Medical Malpractice? 

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional or institution fails to provide treatment that meets an acceptable standard of care and causes harm or injury to the patient.

Typical types of medical malpractice include misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, improper treatment, surgical errors, medication errors, and delayed diagnosis. Inexperienced doctors or nurses can cause such errors due to a lack of training or inadequate experience. Likewise, medical negligence may arise if a health professional fails to provide proper information before procedures or treatments, resulting in preventable injuries.

Regardless of the type of medical malpractice resulting in neglect and inappropriate actions, victims have the right to seek compensation for their suffering due to this breach of trust and care.

Failure to make, serve and/or file a timely claim or complaint will bar even the chance of recovery thus we urge anyone seeking to make a recovery, to immediately retain counsel without delay.
