When seeking medical care in times of illness, poor health, or injury, you put your trust in the skill and professionalism of your medical providers. Unfortunately, it is all too common for medical providers to fail you and for negligence to result. Medical negligence occurs when a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or other medical provider fails to meet a reasonable and accepted standard of care in the medical community. When medical malpractice results in injury or death, victims and their families can be burdened with astronomical medical costs and unnecessary suffering.
