People visit doctors and other healthcare professionals when they need help getting better and usually, this is a safe choice.

Defining Medical Malpractice
There is a difference between minor, unintended mistakes at the hands of medical practitioners and major oversights, accidents, or actions that constitute medical malpractice. In order for an injury to be considered medical malpractice, it must be proven that the healthcare professional in question clearly failed to meet the accepted level of standard care. This means that the injury or condition could have been prevented if another or more capable medical employee had been administering your care. Obviously, this is subjective, which is why it is imperative to retain a highly qualified and experienced personal injury attorney for your case.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice Injuries
There are countless accidents and conditions that can occur as a result of medical malpractice, but some that we see often include:
- Infections contracted due to unclean or unsafe hospital conditions or policies
- Failure to properly diagnose and treat conditions
