Medical Malpractice & Negligence
Medical Malpractice is an area of personal injury law that permits individuals to receive compensation for injuries caused by the acts or omissions of medical providers where the providers’ quality of care does not meet the standards of the medical community. Patients trust their medical providers will comply with the highest standards of care; unfortunately, mistakes occur that often result in serious injury and death.
