Patients place a great deal of trust in doctors, many times these doctors, surgeons and obstetricians are dealing with our lives. When a medical professional of any kind is negligent in his or her treatment of a patient, it may result in serious injuries and even death. Negligence in this context, refers to a professional’s failure to provide a standard and acceptable level of care. Another term for negligence in the medical field is medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice law allows injured victims to seek compensation if a negligent party or entity cause an injury or death. If a death occurs, some members of the patient’s family may be able to pursue a medical malpractice or wrongful death claim. In these cases, proof of negligence is required. Determining who is liable for a medical malpractice claim may be complicated as it may be the doctor or medical professional who caused harm to the patient, or it may be a city or state-owned hospital. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can evaluate a potential case and help prove who is legally responsible.
