In the vast majority of situations, health care providers offer professional and invaluable services to their patients. But mistakes happen, good intentions aside. And even a seemingly slight error in treatment or diagnosis can have devastating consequences.

Definition and Characteristics

"Medical malpractice" refers to cases in which a doctor or other health care professional fails to perform competently in providing care to a patient, and the patient suffers harm as a result.

Medical malpractice cases often share two characteristics: on the practical side they come charged with emotion and stress, and on the legal side they are extremely complex and challenging. If you think you may have a medical malpractice case, this website is here to help.
