Medical malpractice is when a person is injured by the negligent actions or inactions of a health care provider. Medical malpractice can be committed by doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, therapists, etc. If you have been injured by a health care provider, talking to a medical malpractice attorney is free.

Health care providers owe you a duty of care, meaning there are certain standards they must follow. The standards vary depending on where you live, what type of facility you are at, and what type of provider caused your injury. But, if the standards are violated, it’s considered negligence.
You’ll also have to prove damages in order to win a medical malpractice case, which means you will have to show – in dollars – the extent of your harm. Damages for pain and suffering may be available, as well. If someone dies as the result of medical malpractice, a wrongful death lawsuit might be appropriate. An initial consultation with an attorney is a great way to get your questions answered.
Not every medical injury is a lawsuit. If you have minor injury, it’s probably not worth that much, legally speaking. An attorney is going to shy away from taking on the expense of pursuing a small case. Similarly, if you experience a bad result, from surgery for example, it’s not automatically medical malpractice. If your surgeon followed protocol and acted reasonably, they may not be legally responsible for your injury.
