Doctors, hospitals and medical providers deserve our respect. However, when they act carelessly and injure patients, they should be held accountable, just as anyone else. No more and no less.
Medical malpractice is a form of negligence where an injury results from the failure of a medical professional or medical facility (doctor, nurse, dentist, chiropractor, medical technician, psychiatric hospital, or healthcare facility) to exercise adequate care, skill or diligence in performing a duty.
The determination of whether a duty of care is met depends upon the standard of care for that professional or facility in their community. In other words, the applicable duty arises from the accepted practices of other professionals or facilities in the same field and geographical area. In the case of a doctor who is a medical specialist, the standard of care is determined by the standard of good medical practice in that specialty within the community. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of possible medical malpractice, contact us immediately.
