Medical malpractice remains a widespread problem despite advances in both medicine and healthcare technology. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to recognize when it occurs and how best to protect yourself.
Suing for medical malpractice can seem like a daunting prospect for those who don’t know much about the legal system.
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional deviates from generally accepted standards of care in a way that causes harm to a patient. Malpractice cases involve patients who have suffered harm or injury as a result of a medical professional’s negligence.
Approximately 90% of personal injury cases are handled and resolved in court. The settlement process is usually faster and less expensive than a trial, and it provides victims with an easy way to get compensated.
