Proving Legal Liability for Medical Malpractice Requires Medical Knowledge and Legal Skill
Medical malpractice requires that the injured patient or decedent prove that the health care provider failed to treat the patient with the same level of care and skill that another reasonable health care provider would have done under the same circumstances (standard of care) and that this deviation from the standard of care caused harm to the patient. To find this proof, a medical expert is required to provide an opinion.
Medical malpractice can include, emergency room errors, diagnostic errors, birth injuries, surgical errors, anesthesia errors, medication errors and many other failures of the healthcare provider to provide the standard of care.
Providing informed consent to the healthcare provider does not excuse medical malpractice. If you think you may have been harmed by medical malpractice, please contact us. Initial consultations are always free.
