When you go to a medical facility, the last thing you think is that a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional will be negligent in their care and cause you harm. You put trust in these medical professionals and sometimes that trust is not always rewarded. There are instances where a medical professional’s conduct elevates to the level of malpractice.

A Johns Hopkins study detailed that in the United States, more than 250,000 deaths occur each year due to some medical error. This is not a statistic that medical professionals would relate to their patients.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. There are certain medical standards that are recognized by the profession as being acceptable. This is known as the standard of care. A patient has the right to expect that health care professionals will deliver care that is consistent with these standards. If a medical professional deviates from the standard of care, then negligence may be established.

A well-practiced medical malpractice attorney in Connecticut can review the circumstances of a particular case to determine whether a medical professional’s negligence caused a person harm.
