What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a legal term used to describe the careless or negligent behavior of medical professionals. Specifically, attorneys often use this term to describe the actions - or inactions - of a surgeon, doctor, nurse or another professional that resulted in an injury.

Proving that a health care professional broke these laws often demands a rigorous investigation. That's why we strongly urge injury victims to contact us as soon as possible. That way, we can start searching for the evidence while the facts are still fresh in people's minds.
