When we are sick or injured and seek medical care, we expect to be treated ethically by our doctors and hospitals. Still, it is all too common for individuals in the medical field to provide negligent service and cause further injury to the patient. In many cases, a medical malpractice suit is filed that shows how the medical practitioner or hospital deviated from standards of care generally accepted by the medical community at large. Medical malpractice suits can be for anything from unexpected infections (such as Staph), traumatic brain injury to wrongful death. Medical malpractice also includes services provided by nurses, therapists, hospitals, clinics, managed care organizations, and medical corporations. If you or a loved one was further injured through an error, lapse of treatment, or did not give consent to a risky operation, the patientâ€™s best interests were not served. You may be entitled to damages rewarded for your pain, suffering, loss of work, or loss of life by bringing a medical malpractice case against those who provided negligent care.
