Medical malpractice can have long-lasting, devastating effects. If you believe you are the victim of medical malpractice, it may be helpful to file a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party (i.e. the physician, other health professional, or medical facility). The following will discuss some of the most common types of medical malpractice cases.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a term used to describe an occurrence where a hospital, physician, or other health care professional causes injury or death to a patient, either from negligence or omission. In these cases, the injured patient (or his family, in cases where the patient dies) is allowed to sue the liable party to receive compensation for his injuries.
