We put a lot of trust in our doctors and health care professionals. As patients, we rely on these men and women’s advice, expertise, and care, and we have every right to expect only the highest standard of care. However, even the best healthcare workers make mistakes. Unfortunately, these mistakes can often cause you pain and suffering or a loved one’s wrongful death.
Medical malpractice happens when a medical professional or institution committed wrongdoing that led to the physical or emotional harm of a patient. When medical professionals deviate from the recognized “standard of care” in the treatment of a patient, medical malpractice occurs. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) says medical negligence, or malpractice, is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.
Healthcare professionals---whether that be a doctor, nurse, hospital staff, etc.----owe patients a duty of care to ensure their safety. When their mistakes cause your or another’s suffering, holding them accountable for their actions can protect future patients from coming in harm’s way.
If you are considering filing a medical malpractice claim, contacting an experienced attorney first is important. Trying to prove a doctor or hospital’s negligence is difficult, especially if you try to do it alone.
