In the medical community, even a small mistake by a health care professional can have a tremendous negative impact on a patient.
Unfortunately, medical malpractice is more common than many people think. The reality is that many people today suffer often life-changing injuries as the result of negligence of a doctor, hospital, nurse, physician assistant or other medical professional or facility. Even more tragically, there are a number of people who face the loss of a loved one due to medical malpractice – either through medical errors as well as failure to diagnose certain life-threatening conditions.
Medical malpractice can be defined as failure of a medical professional to provide a standard level of care to a patient, and can be seen in many forms. Examples include anesthesia errors, cardiology malpractice, failure to diagnose cancer, medication errors, surgical errors and OB/GYN errors, which can result in birth injuries. Whatever the situation, if you or someone you know has been the victim of some any type of medical malpractice, you are entitled to the compensation you need for your medical costs, as well as compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages and other lifelong expenses often resulting from a medical error.
