What is a medical malpractice lawsuit?

Medical malpractice is when a patient is harmed by a medical professional by failing to provide proper health care and treatment.  The legal definition of medical malpractice demands that the medical provider must have been negligent.  If you have had something bad happen to you due to a serious, preventable medical error, you have the right to hold the medical professional accountable and they should pay you for the harm they caused.   


Common types of medical malpractice lawsuits include:

  • Failure or delay in diagnosis
  • Surgical Errors
  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Childbirth Injuries
  • Medication Errors
  • Defective medical products
