Medical Malpractice

All doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other health care providers have a legal duty to provide proper medical care to patients.

However, these service providers are human and, unfortunately, wrong decisions can be made or incidents may happen that result in the failure of the healthcare professional to meet the standard of care required, by causing further injury or death to a patient.

If a doctor fails to provide proper medical care, a patient can sue them for medical malpractice. The two main types of medical malpractice are negligence and failure to get a patient’s informed consent. And, in some cases, the failure to get informed consent may also be an assault.

Often health care professionals need to make quick decisions without the best information, so these cases can be complex and require the expertise of a personal injury lawyer.
