Medical malpractice is when a doctor, surgeon, nurse hospital or other medical professional performs their job duties in a way that deviates from accepted medical standards of care. The standard of care is: what would a reasonable heath care provider do under the same or similar circumstances. Just like drivers have a duty to drive safely on our roads, doctors, nurses and hospitals have a duty to treat patients within accepted standards of care and avoid causing undue harm. When a doctor, nurse or hospital breaches that duty to patients, that is negligence, in legal terms, and the law allows that injured person or their family to recover damages in civil courts. The law is meant to protect patients from medical malpractice. If a doctor, hospital, nurse or other health care provider has caused injury or harm to you as a result of medical error, you or your family are entitled to capable and knowledgeable legal representation.
