Medical Malpractice: An Overview
Most of us admire doctors and other health care professionals. And rightly so: They work tirelessly to heal the sick, and they often go to extraordinary measures to save lives. But sometimes, something goes wrong. When a health care professional makes a mistake, the cost can be very great – from a permanent disability to death. Medical errors kill tens of thousands of people each year. The malpractice attorneys at Friedman, Domiano & Smith, believe that we need to hold health care providers accountable when they are careless.

Medical malpractice is the departure of the standard of care for a medical procedure. There are specific protocols that doctors, physicians and medical specialists must maintain. If they deviate from those protocols and injure you or a loved one, then they should be held liable for the damages caused. Medical malpractice cases involve understanding whether a deviation of the standard of care took place.
When medical malpractice occurs and results in death, you have a two-year statute for wrongful death, compared to only one year if the injury was not fatal. This is why it is so important to connect with a medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
