Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice, sometimes referred to as medical negligence, occurs when a health care provider violates the governing standard of care when providing treatment to a patient, causing the patient to suffer an injury or death. Medical malpractice can result from an action taken by the medical practitioner, or by the failure of that practitioner to take a medically appropriate action. Examples of medical malpractice include:

Medical malpractice actions can be brought by the injured patient against any responsible licensed health care provider, including but not limited to doctors, nurses, counselors, psychologists and psychotherapists.

Medical malpractice lawsuits can be exceptionally expensive to pursue with costs often exceeding $100,000.00. There are many technical skills involved in prosecuting a malpractice claim, records to assemble and review, experts to be consulted and some cases can take years to litigate. The attorneys of Derr, Pursel, Luschas & Naparsteck, LLP, are knowledgeable and experienced in medical malpractice litigation.
