Medical malpractice occurs when there is a failure to follow generally accepted medical practices, which results in harming a patient. Consequently, patients may experience injury, illness and in the most severe cases, death. However, not every injury that a patient suffers during medical treatment is caused by medical malpractice. An experienced attorney can evaluate the circumstances under which injury occurred and determine whether grounds exist for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Proving that a practitioner deviated from standard practice typically requires an investigation and testimony by a medical expert or experts.
