Medical malpractice occurs when a medical practitioner acts in a negligent manner when treating a medical condition, resulting in injury to a patient. Examples of medical malpractice include:

  • failure to diagnose, or misdiagnosis of a disease or medical condition
  • surgical mistakes
  • unreasonable delay in treating a diagnosed medical condition
  • failure to provide appropriate treatment for a medical condition

Attorneys often help medical malpractice victims recover very large financial settlements to offset a lifetime of medical bills.
