Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional's conduct falls below the acceptable standard of care through action or lack of action.

Doctors, physician assistants, chiropractors, physical therapists, dentists, nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives and other medical professionals have legal obligations to act according to professional standards. Falling short of the applicable standard of care may result in patients suffering serious injuries or dying from illnesses that should have been diagnosed earlier.
