Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney
Were you or a loved one harmed by a medical mistake?
Medical malpractice is the term coined to describe the failure of medical personnel to use reasonable care in the administration of their services. A medical professional may be deemed "negligent" for failing to provide an acceptable standard of care to a patient.
It can occur in a number of ways:
- Taking out the wrong organ or performing the wrong procedure during surgery
- Prescribing a medicine without taking drug interactions into consideration
- Failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing a medical condition
- A botched surgery or other type of surgical mistake
