Washington DC Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical malpractice refers to medical care that falls short of accepted minimum standards. A doctor, a nurse, a hospital and other medical providers can all commit malpractice. Malpractice can arise due to:
- Treatment provided
- Omissions or lapses in treatment
- Other deviations from accepted medical care standards
Medical malpractice can have devastating consequences, and patients can be seriously harmed as a result of medical negligence. In some cases, a person may be killed as a result of a medical error or lapse, while in other instances the patient may experience lifelong injury. Medical errors can necessitate expensive treatments that would otherwise not be necessary and can seriously diminish earning potential and quality of life.
When medical malpractice occurs, a claim can be made against the medical provider or the health care facility that was responsible for the medical negligence. Victims of medical malpractice may be entitled to significant compensation for their injuries and losses.
