Filing a Personal Injury Claim for Medical Malpractice 

All of us at some point need medical care for an injury – from a broken bone to a serious cut or worse – and we rely on medical professionals to perform at a level of care that protects us and our overall health. But, sometimes that doesn’t happen, causing the patient greater or new injuries. That’s “medical malpractice.”

Medical malpractice personal injury cases arise when healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, or hospitals, provide substandard care that results in harm or injury to a patient. They can arise from situations such as birth injuries, medical misdiagnosis, hospital negligence, and medical errors.

The elements of a personal injury claim are similar to a medical malpractice lawsuit in that a plaintiff must prove the defendant had a duty of care that was breached and that because of that breach damages were done that caused the plaintiff harm. Sounds complicated, but our expert attorneys can sort through the legalese for clients from start to finish.
