Medical malpractice is the failure of a doctor or healthcare provider to provide medical care that meets the accepted standard of practice. When a doctor or healthcare provider fails to meet the accepted standard of practice, the result can mean injury to or death of a patient. Injuries that result from medical malpractice can be severe, life-altering, and permanent.
If you or a loved one were the victim of medical malpractice, it is important you speak with a attorney right away. The law limits how long medical malpractice victims have to pursue a claim and many victims have been denied recovery because they waited too long to speak with a attorney.
