Is Every Error in Treatment Grounds for Malpractice?
Doctors and other health care providers unfortunately cause harm to patients on a regular basis. But is it always malpractice? Malpractice occurs when a medical professional deviates from the "agreed upon standard of care" for the patient's condition. After heart disease and cancer, medical malpractice may be considered the third leading cause of death. Yet not every error of judgment is considered grounds for legal action and potential resulting compensation.
If you believe you have received treatment that may merit a claim, the only way to know for certain is to contact a qualified legal professional who specializes in personal injury law, including hospital and medical injury cases.
