The definition of medical malpractice is professional negligence by a health care practitioner through act or omission. The care that is given deviates from acceptable medical standards of practice and it causes serious injury to the patient. It is mandatory for medical practitioners to purchase and maintain professional liability insurance that will offset the costs and risk of lawsuits if a patient should happen to feel that they have been injured as a result of negligence by their medical provider.
With more than 85 years of combined experience, Alpern Schubert P.C. Personal Injury Attorneys will work with you to verify all four elements of negligence that are needed for a successful malpractice claim.

Duty Owed: A legal duty exists when a health care provider or hospital undertakes the responsibility of caring for or treating a patient.
Duty Breach: A breach of duty occurs when a medical provider fails to conform to a relevant standard of medical care. The standard of medical care can be proven by obvious errors or expert testimony.
Injury Caused by Breach of Duty: The breach of duty is the immediate cause of the injuries that have been sustained.
Damages: Unless damages exist (emotional and pecuniary losses), there is no solid basis for a claim, regardless of whether or not the medical practitioner was negligent in their care.
