Medical Malpractice Information

By Ward Smith  Oct. 31, 2010 1:05p

In situations where our life and well-being are threatened or we need treatment from medical practitioners, we rely entirely on the expertise, thoroughness and professionalism of such medical experts. When that trust is violated by negligence or omission the result can be painful injuries, sickness and costly medical bills from long-lasting side effects. Medical malpractice is a breach of the trust we place in medical practitioners including nurses, doctors and surgeons. The medical community is held to extremely high standards because of these kinds of dangers, which, with this kind of negligence, can result in sickness, serious injuries, loss of limb, contraction of diseases and even wrongful death.

There are certain time limitations in cases that involve medical malpractice. These are restricted by a statute of limitations, which dictates when a lawsuit may be filed after the malpractice has occurred. This is complicated though when injuries or illnesses take time to become apparent to the victim and it is not immediately evident that malpractice has occurred. In some such circumstances the limitations may be lifted or extended. For these reasons it is extremely important to immediately contact a medical malpractice lawyer whenever malpractice is discovered to have harmed a loved one.
