Medical Malpractice Attorneys

UNDERSTANDING MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Medical malpractice refers to treatment by a physician, nurse, health care provider or hospital that breaches the standard of medical practice, and that breach caused injury or death. A determination of medical malpractice generally requires the use of an expert witness experienced in the same practice area as the health care provider. The expert witness must testify about the standard of practice and whether the provider met that standard.
