Medical Malpractice law and Medical law govern patients' rights. Medical malpractice is one of the key focuses of medical law, and relates to the liability of a medical professional for negligence in the diagnosis or treatment of a patient resulting in injury or death. Negligence is the predominant theory of liability concerning allegation of medical malpractice, making this type of litigation part of Tort Law. The physician-patient conversation and commencement of treatment already establish a treatment agreement. A culpable act may result from a violation of the duty to inform the patient, but also due to medical errors in treatment (medical malpractice). Physicians, as professionals, owe a duty of care to those who seek their treatment. If medical malpractice is suspected, the best way to protect a patient’s rights is to contact a qualified attorney. Claims on grounds of liability for medical malpractice can also originate during times of treatment in hospitals and nursing homes. Our attorneys are experienced in handling medical malpractice areas, including nursing home abuse, medical errors, birth injury, and more. We represent our clients out of court as a patients' ombudsman but also before conciliation committees and courts.
