Medical malpractice occurs when a negligent act or omission by a doctor or other medical professional results in damage or harm to a patient. Negligence by a medical professional could include an error in a diagnosis, treatment or illness management. If such negligence results in injury to a patient, a case could arise against the doctor if his or her actions deviated from generally accepted standards of practice; against the hospital for improper care, such as problems with medications, sanitation or nursing care; or against local, state or federal agencies that operate hospital facilities.
Alabama and Tennessee Medical malpractice laws are designed to protect patients’ rights to pursue compensation for any injury caused by negligence. Therefore, if you believe you have a medical malpractice claim, it is important to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can help you determine whether your claim is worth pursuing.
