What constitutes “medical malpractice?”
Medical malpractice is a very broad term and can refer to many different mistakes or acts. Generally speaking, medical malpractice cases are filed after a medical practitioner causes a patient to be injured or ill following a procedure or giving a prescription. In many cases, victims of medical malpractice are awarded financial compensation for their claims, which can cover the costs of treating any injury or illness that comes from a medical practitioner’s mistake. The best way to know if you have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit is to consult with an attorney.
