Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice refers to negligent, reckless, or malicious actions carried out by a healthcare provider that leads to harm for their patient. Medical providers are held to a high standard of care, and a failure to uphold that responsibility can lead to devastating physical, financial, and mental injuries for a patient. A misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, error in medication, surgical error, sloppy procedure, premature discharge, and other examples of inadequate or harmful care can all constitute medical malpractice. 

Medical malpractice claims can be difficult to prove, which is why the assistance of our experienced Essex medical malpractice attorney is so valuable. To prove that malpractice has occurred, it must be proven that the healthcare provider owed you a duty of care, breached the duty of care either through an action that they took or the failure to take action, that their breach of care directly lead to your injuries and losses, and that these injuries and losses caused damages. These damages may be physical, mental, emotional, or financial.
