Medical professionals owe a duty to their patients to provide a reasonable standard of care. When a medical provider fails to provide the level of care that other reasonably prudent equivalent medical providers would have under the same or similar circumstances, medical malpractice has occurred. Medical malpractice has not necessarily occurred if a patient experiences a bad or unexpected outcome, if there is a difference in opinion amongst doctors, or even if a mistake is made. To succeed in a claim for medical malpractice, the claimant must be able to prove that the medical provider demonstrated unreasonable behaviour, failed to perform their duties with care and competence, and was negligent. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice resulting in injury, illness, or wrongful death, you need experienced attorneys to represent you.
