When a medical professional's negligent actions cause injury or harm to a patient, it is considered medical malpractice. All healthcare providers are legally responsible for providing their patients with reasonably safe and proper medical treatment. When a medical professional acts negligently, he/she may be held liable for the death or injury of a patient.

Medical malpractice laws apply to all licensed medical professionals in the United States. These professionals include doctors, surgeons, nurses, dentists, chiropractors, pharmacists, anesthesiologists, technicians, cardiologists, pediatricians, pathologists, oncologists, dermatologists, psychologists, hospital workers, nursing homes staff etc.

Knowledgeable Surgery Error Attorneys

At Peña & Kahn, PLLC, we handle all types of medical negligence cases:
Surgical errors and other medical errors
Failure to diagnose serious medical conditions
Misdiagnosis and improper treatment
Drug and dosage errors
Birth injuries
Failure to properly treat post-operative infections
Nursing home abuse and negligence
Anesthesia error
Prescription drug or medication error 
Improper consent to treat an illness or conduct a medical procedure
Failure to perform necessary tests or biopsies

It is important to remember that just because an individual receives unsuccessful treatment, or sustains an injury while undergoing medical care, it does not automatically give him/her a legitimate cause to file a medical malpractice claim. In order for patients to successfully file a medical malpractice lawsuit, they need to prove the following:
The medical professional acted negligently
A doctor-patient relationship existed
The medical professional had a duty to treat the patient
The medical professional deviated from standard medical protocol
Actual injury, harm, or death did indeed occur
Injury or death was a direct result of the medical professional's actions or mistake
