What Is Medical Malpractice?
Doctors and other healthcare providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients. Medical negligence or “malpractice” occurs when the care provided by a physician or healthcare provider falls below these standards, causing injury or death by either failing to do something that should have been done or doing something that should not have been done.
While a simple mistake is not enough to constitute negligence, it may constitute malpractice if a death or injury was caused by the failure to meet minimum standards of care or the failure to diagnose an easily detectable illness. Our Louisiana medical malpractice lawyers are very experienced in determining whether or not malpractice has occurred.
