Medical malpractice cases have unfortunately become all too common. A Harvard Medical School study found that over 5% of all hospital patients were injured as of a result of medical negligence. Medical negligence, more commonly called medical malpractice, occurs when a doctor or health care provider deviates from accepted standards of medical procedure. Most people do not want to pursue legal action against their physician, but if the patient is seriously harmed, it may be necessary to hire an attorney.

Types of Medical Malpractice:

Misdiagnosis of cancer cases

Delay in breast cancer diagnosis- if a lump or cyst is not identified or treated soon after it is reported, it is possible that the provider was negligent.

HMOs failure to provide adequate medical care

Errors in surgery and other medical services

Difficult to Prove
