Malpractice occurs when a medical or health care professional deviates from standards in his or her profession, thereby causing injury to a patient. If a doctor makes a mistake, they must be held accountable.
In order to meet the legal definition of medical malpractice, the treatment provided by a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, or other health care professional must be in some way negligent, resulting in care that falls below the standard of care of that specialty and causes injury or death to a patient.
Though most of the time we can expect to receive quality care from medical professionals, situations do arise where negligence occurs and mistakes happen.
According to a 2016 report by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease and cancer. The study states that 10% of US deaths are due to preventable medical mistakes. Researchers believe the number could be far greater as deaths caused by medical errors are underreported.
A doctor must be held accountable for mistakes made. You need a law firm who will assist you in making doctors accountable for injuries caused to you, or your loved one.
