Medical Malpractice Liability

Maybe you had surgery and discovered that a surgical tool was mistakenly left behind. Or, you were recently diagnosed with an illness that you don't actually have. If you've had similar experience, you might have a medical malpractice claim against the doctor, nurse, or hospital at which you where treated. An act of medical malpractice can occur from a medical professional's failure to diagnose a patient correctly, improperly treating a patient, or treating the patient without the patient's permission. FindLaw's Medical Malpractice Liability section offers helpful information if your injury resulted from a medical procedure or a doctor's visit. This section discusses state medical malpractice laws, how a person can prove fault in a medical malpractice case, and possible defenses to a medical malpractice claim. You can also find a helpful section that outlines the first steps to take when pursuing a medical malpractice case.
