Medical malpractice, simply put, occurs when a medical provider deviates from the standard of care. Medical providers are required to exercise reasonable care in accordance with the local standards of care for the profession involved. If a doctor, surgeon, hospital, or other medical provider acts, or fails to act, in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care, then that provider can be liable for an injured person’s damages. Though the majority of health care providers do good work, mistakes are sometimes made which could adversely affect a person, as well as their family and friends, for the rest of their lives.

Malpractice is the failure of a medical professional or a medical facility to meet the standard of good medical practice in areas in which the medical professional or medical facility specializes. A medical professional may be a doctor, a nurse, a medical technician, or other health care provider. A medical facility may be a hospital, nursing home, medical testing facility or clinic. If the medical attention fails to meet the standard of good medical practice and harm results to a patient, the medical professional or medical facility may be liable under malpractice laws for the resulting damages.
