Attorneys Holding Medical Providers Accountable
Unfortunately, negligence by medical personnel can be the most life-changing event in one’s life. Although the majority of medical providers are highly qualified, compassionate professionals who meet or exceed the standards of care that their profession requires, at times, even the most highly trained in the medical field allow themselves to be distracted or otherwise experience a lapse in judgment that results in permanent injury to their patient.
Medical malpractice is a form of negligence involving a medical treatment provider. If someone is injured as a result of a treatment provider’s deviation from the standard of care, that provider may be liable for the resulting injury. The determination of whether a medical professional has deviated from the standard of care is based on a comparison to other medical professionals in the same field. In other words, what would a reasonably competent medical professional, practicing in the same field as the defendant, do under the circumstances that the defendant was facing with respect to care and treatment of the patient?
Medical malpractice is not limited to the potential negligence of physicians, the negligent acts of nurses, physician’s assistants, and others can form the basis of a medical malpractice case.
