Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider (doctor, hospital, HMO, nurse, chiropractor, therapist or other individual or entity licensed to provide medical care or treatment), in acting or failing to act, does not comply with the standard of care in the pertinent medical field, resulting in injury, disability, physical impairment or death. It includes misdiagnosis, the failure to provide appropriate treatment or a delay of treatment. For example, medical malpractice may happen when a patient is not properly taken care of during surgery, when a doctor fails to read test results, when medicine is improperly prescribed, or when a patient is not adequately monitored while in the hospital.
If you or a loved one have been a victim of medical malpractice, it is best to consult a Upper Peninsula medical malpractice attorney that is qualified and experienced to determine if you have a meritorious case.
