Patients trust doctors, nurses and other medical professionals with their lives. When that trust is violated, the results can be tragic. Mistakes and complications are common in medical treatment. But when doctors, nurses and other health care professionals fail to perform within the standard of care guidelines, injury, illness, or even death may result from these failures. When this happens, there may be justification for bringing a case for medical malpractice. If you or a loved one has suffered because of medical malpractice, you may face a wide range of hardships including expensive medical bills, lifetime complications, pain and suffering.

Who can be held liable for Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice can take the form of negligence, in which the doctor, hospital, nurse or any healthcare provider did not take the proper action at the proper time. Negligently performing an operation and providing a patient with the wrong medicine are both examples of medical malpractice. In general, any healthcare professional who deviates from standard practices of modern medicine has committed medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice lawsuits can be brought against doctors, nurses, obstetricians, radiologists, anesthesiologists, surgeons, orthopedists, pharmacists, physical therapists, as well as hospitals, medical offices, surgical centers, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers.
