Medical Malpractice Medical malpractice is an act of negligence or carelessness on the part of a health care professional, including doctors, nurses, hospitals, HMOs, PPO’s, chiropractors, therapists, or other licensed medical care providers, who deviate from conventional medical standards. While some cases can yield undesirable results and are unfortunately unable to be prevented, some do warrant compensation for damages incurred. Under the law, harm caused to a patient due to the misdiagnosis or the failure to diagnosis an illness, injuries suffered during the birth of a child, incorrect treatment of a medical condition, or misuse of prescription medications is unacceptable. Consulting with legal council will provide you with the information you will need to decide your best options in order to potentially receive proper compensation for your pain and suffering.
