Physicians, dentists, psychiatrists, pharmacists, nurses and surgeons are all tasked with maintaining the standard of care in their field. If they breach that standard of care and injury or death results from that breach, they are liable for medical malpractice. 

Medical professionals are required to treat patients based on a “standard of care”. The standard of care is that level of care which other physicians or medical professionals would do in the same situation. Medical professionals who breach the standard of care which results in an injury or death are liable for medical malpractice. They are required to be experts in their field of medicine and are required to maintain that level of education and training in order to treat their patients with the standard of care required by all medical professionals in order to diagnose their patients, prescribe the proper medication, give advice to their patients and treat their patients. 


​Medical malpractice can include cases of:

  • Birth injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Delayed treatment due to missed diagnosis

Medical personnel are held to a higher standard than other professionals because of nature of their business.  Doing their jobs improperly is paramount.  Their diagnoses and procedures should improve your health or condition, not cause an injury or worsen an illness. Injuries from medical malpractice can affect a victim for rest of their lives.
