Medical malpractice can be life-shattering, and in the worst cases, can result in death. Medical malpractice refers to when a healthcare professional or provider administers treatment that is considered unsound, resulting in the harm, injury or death of a patient, either by omission or negligence.
Healthcare providers are legally expected to provide a consistent and standard quality of care. They are also expected to obtain informed consent before treatments, which includes explaining the benefits of the treatment, the possible risks of treatment, and the alternatives to treatment – failure to do so may constitute negligence.
When the standard of care is compromised, people can suffer from enduring significant personal losses. Victims of medical malpractice often deal not only with pain and disability, but with a sense of betrayal and regret. When malpractice involves injuries to children, or results in fatalities, the betrayal and regret may be overwhelming.
Medical malpractice claims need to be acted on quickly and with skill. Knowing the laws is one thing, but having the experience and resources to fully understand and make a case are another.
