Medical Malpractice FAQ

Injured by a Healthcare Provider’s Carelessness? Call John Bales Attorneys.

  1. What is medical malpractice?
    Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider’s negligent—or careless—conduct fails to meet the medical community’s accepted standard of care and causes harm to a patient.

    The standard of care is based upon the prevailing, or widely held, skills and knowledge of other professionals within the medical community.

  2. How can you prove medical malpractice?
    To pursue a medical malpractice claim, you must prove that:
    • Your physician or healthcare provider was obligated to provide you with a professional standard of care.
    • The professional standard of care was not met.
    • You were physically or financially injured.
    • The injuries you received are the result of your healthcare provider’s failure to meet the standard of care.
