Doctors, nurses and other health care providers usually provide caring, professional service with a high standard of excellence for their patients. However, on occasion, things can go wrong. If you, your child or other loved one has been injured or if a loved one has died as a result of a medical mistake, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Health care providers are usually insured and must pay compensation if a medical malpractice claim is proven against them.
A doctor’s negligence is probably the most common factor in most medical malpractice cases. When a doctor or hospital deviates from what’s known as the standard of acceptable medical care and acts negligently, the resulting injuries could be the basis for a medical malpractice claim if it is also shown that the actions or failure to act on the part of the medical provider was the cause of harm.
