Understanding Medical Malpractice: Have you been a victim?
Medical malpractice is the improper or negligent treatment (act or omission) of a patient by a health care provider. Professionals in the medical field have a duty to provide competent care to patients. When an injury occurs due to a practitioner's negligence, the patient can seek compensation for damages.
It has been determined that avoidable medical errors are the cause of approximately 200,000 hospital deaths each year. It can be a horrific experience to have a loved-one with a curable illness die from careless medical treatment.
A medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed against doctors, hospitals and the government agencies that manage hospitals. Malpractice cases can be extremely involved due to their technical aspects. They often require testimony from medical experts regarding treatment standards and protocols. A Temecula personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and discuss your legal options for compensation from malpractice injuries.
