Medical malpractice occurs when a health or medical professional violates or neglects the standards of care while attending to a patient. As a victim of medical malpractice, the law entitles you to financial compensation that could cover everything from wrongful death or disfigurement to lost earnings, loss of consortium, medical bills and even compensation for your pain and suffering. But first, you must speak with a medical malpractice lawyer about your case. If you believe that a doctor or healthcare provider is responsible for injuries or ill health sustained by you or a loved one, speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney to discuss your legal options.
