Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse or another healthcare provider’s negligence or recklessness leads to an injury, death or worsened illness. To prevail in a claim based on medical malpractice the patient must prove that a health care provider deviated from the prevailing professional standard of care and proximately caused injury to the patient. The failure of a health care provider to offer reasonable care to a patient may result in tragic and catastrophic injury such as paralysis, brain injury or wrongful death.
Medical malpractice claims are often complex and may be difficult to prove. There are a number of factors that must be considered in these cases. It is important to hire a Connecticut Medical Malpractice Attorney that has the experience and knowledge to successfully represent you.
