Doctors are required to take an oath to do no harm, but serious mistakes can occur in hospitals, medical offices, and clinics. Sadly, the effects of medical malpractice can be devastating to patients who are counting on treatment to get better, not worse. Medical malpractice lawyers can help get the restitution a patient deserves.
When a patient is injured due to negligent behavior of a healthcare professional, they may file a medical malpractice claim to seek compensation for their injuries. Claims can be filed against all members of the healthcare industry. This includes doctors, surgeons, and nurses, if the healthcare professional acted negligently and the patient sustained injuries as a result.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice happens when a healthcare provider deviates from the recognized “standard of care” in the treatment of a patient. Medical malpractice lawyers ask themselves this question: What was the medical standard of care in the situation in question? The “standard of care”
is based on the customary practices of the average physician given the scope of their practice, i.e., what the average physician would
customarily or typically do in similar circumstances.
