Medical malpractice is professional negligence or improper treatment by a healthcare provider that causes a patient to suffer injuries or results in death. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is a much more common problem than many patients realize. In fact, data from Johns Hopkins University has shown that more than 250,000 people in the U.S. die in a typical year from medical errors and negligence.
Medical injuries can occur in nearly any healthcare scenario or encounter—including during routine procedures and complicated surgeries—in outpatient facilities or top hospitals. Another significant source of medical malpractice situations is in nursing homes and long-term senior care facilities.
If you believe you may be the victim of a medical mistake or malpractice, it's critical to understand your rights. Statistics show that only about 2% of medical malpractice victims ever file compensation claims. Do not allow yourself or your loved ones to suffer.

One of the most critical factors in determining whether malpractice occurred is to prove that a healthcare provider has deviated from the "standard of care" (or what a reasonably prudent medical provider would or would not have done in a similar situation) in treating a patient.
Not following the standard of care often shows negligence, which might be willful or accidental—either way, negligence indicates malpractice.
So how do you prove negligence?
The short answer is that you do not. This is where an experienced personal injury attorney should be consulted to step in and help you sort through the facts. He or she will carefully review your or your loved one's medical records, conduct interviews with involved individuals, and consult with knowledgeable medical experts, among other fact-finding tasks, to determine whether you have a qualified case and seek the compensation you may be owed.Contact Us to Discuss Your Case
