Doctors and medical professionals must adhere to certain legal standards of medical practice and health care, known as the “standard of care”. Medical Malpractice occurs when a medical professional or a medical facility fails to exercise adequate care in the performance of a duty, resulting in injury to a patient.
The determination of whether that duty has been met is based upon the applicable standard of care for the community where the treatment was rendered. That determination is made by another medical professional in the same medical specialty.
Medical malpractice cases require an attorney with considerable knowledge and skill. Medical malpractice cases are often vigorously defended by the medical provider and their insurance carrier.
