Medical professionals should rightly be held to high standards of care. They undergo extensive training and lengthy education to earn their credentials. In many situations, they literally hold patients’ lives in their hands.
In many fields of medicine, something can go wrong in the blink of an eye, leading to significant and lifelong consequences. Negligence on the part of physicians, surgeons, nurses and other health care professionals can leave a wave of tragedy in its wake. Depending on the circumstances, the hospital or health care facility may also potentially be liable for medical negligence or malpractice.
