What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, is when a medical professional violates the accepted standard of care, resulting in an injury with significant damages. Did your medical provider treat your illness or condition in the manner that a reasonably competent and skilled professional with a similar background would have provided?
To prove a case of medical negligence, it is essential that this point is fully proven, with assistance from medical experts who will testify as to the standard of care that was provided, and how the failure resulted in the injuries suffered by the patient.
Where Does Medical Malpractice Take Place in Lake City?
Cases of medical negligence can occur at any doctor’s office, medical center, clinic, dental office, or hospital. Lake City is served by medical clinics, walk-in centers, and urgent care clinics, including:

Patients count on their medical providers to correctly treat illnesses and other health conditions, and put deep faith in these professionals. Even the most qualified, experienced medical professional can make an error – with disastrous results. JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) reports that deaths associated with medical errors may exceed 400,000 yearly – the third most common cause of death in the nation. When getting treatment from any medical professional, there are risks for the patient far beyond what most of us imagine.
