Medical negligence means that a physician or other provider’s actions in treating a patient fell below the applicable standard of care. Said differently, a physician is liable for injuries caused to a patient where the physician failed to act as a reasonably prudent physician would under the same circumstances. The consequences can be dire—serious injury or even death. If you or a loved one have been injured by a botched medical procedure, a missed diagnosis, or some other medical error, you should contact an attorney who can help you to understand your rights and options.
