Medical Malpractice Lawyers and Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Medical malpractice is when a member of the medical profession acts in a negligent manner which results in the injury or death of a patient in his or her care. The public places a very high level of trust in medical professionals and health care providers. Because of both this trust and their specialized training, doctors, nurses, and medical specialists are held to quite stringent standards of competence and professionalism. Medical malpractice occurs when, by action or the failure to act, a medical professional fails to act in accordance with the standard of care to which he or she is held, resulting in harm to the patient.  A medical malpractice attorney can help protect the rights of patients injured by the negligent actions of a doctor, nurse, or hospital. 

Medical malpractice can result in severe injuries, including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Injured organs
  • Coma
  • Birth injury
  • Cardiovascular injuries
  • Amputation
  • Wrongful death

An experienced malpractice attorney can help injury victims file a medical malpractice lawsuit. A malpractice lawyer can also advise you regarding the statute if limitations for your injury. This is the time limit within which you must file your lawsuit. Each state's medical malpractice laws establish a statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims.
