Medical malpractice refers to a breach of trust on the part of a healthcare professional that results in the injury or wrongful death of a patient in their care. More than 400,000 hospital deaths each year are attributed to doctor malpractice, and anywhere from 15,000 to 20,000 malpractice suits are brought against doctors every year.

Medical malpractice refers to any negligent behavior on the part of a healthcare worker that causes a patient to suffer an injury or wrongful death. These types of cases are as varied as the conditions for which patients receive treatment.
Doctors aren’t expected to work miracles, and not all injuries or deaths are considered medical malpractice. The distinguishing feature of malpractice is that it must meet certain criteria.
Proving medical malpractice can be a nuanced, complex affair, which is why it’s so important to retain the services of an experienced medical malpractice attorney if you suspect foul play.
Medical malpractice can cause a lifetime of problems, so it’s important to seek compensation for all of the damages you may sustain. Some of the damages we have successfully recovered include compensation for past and future medical bills, loss of income, physical disability, loss of enjoyment, emotional damage, and more. In certain extraordinary cases in which a doctor’s negligence is particularly careless, a patient may also be awarded punitive damages.
If you have been injured while under a physician’s care, you have a right to seek compensation.
