Simply put, medical malpractice is when doctors, hospitals, pharmacists, or other healthcare professionals injure a patient by providing care that is below the acceptable standard. As patients, we put our trust and our lives in the hands of medical professionals, under the assumption that they will act carefully and responsibly. Unfortunately, when medical professionals perform their jobs negligently, patients can be seriously injured or killed.
Not every case with a poor outcome is necessarily malpractice, however. Medicine is not an exact science and even with the best quality of care, sometimes, treatments are unsuccessful. Medical malpractice suits arises when a healthcare professional fails to deliver standard quality service, resulting in damages to the patient. Additionally, each state has its own rules about how much money an injured plaintiff injured can recover for their injuries. Some states do not place limits on damages while others do. Some states only limit certain kinds of damages. These laws can be difficult to navigate, especially when you are focused on a family member who is suffering. Burg Simpson trial lawyers can help you understand the many details to your case.
