Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals are held to high standards of care. Mistakes in diagnosing or treating illnesses or in performing medical procedures can lead to life-altering ramifications for injured patients.

Hospitals, clinics and care facilities likewise have weighty responsibilities in providing services for their patients. They must ensure that appropriate care is taken in hiring and training staff as well as implementing and enforcing safety protocols. Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional or medical facility fails to comply with reasonable standards of care.
