Medical malpractice is an act or omission by a health care provider that deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and results in injury, damage or loss to a patient. It includes professional negligence by a physician, hospital or other provider of health in which improper or negligent treatment jeopardizes the health care or causes serious injury or loss to a patient and his/her family.
To establish liability and recover damages in a medical malpractice case, you must prove that the medical professional breached the standard of care which others in the profession would employ in the same or similar circumstances. This often requires the use of experts to testify about the appropriate standard and how the doctor, therapist, nurse, etc. failed to meet that standard. Attorneys at Baradat & Paboojian have extensive experience litigating cases on behalf of individuals injured by the negligence of health care providers.
