What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is an area of personal injury law that deals specifically with the professional negligence of medical professionals. If a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional acts negligently or provides a patient with substandard care that leads to serious injury or death, the victim or their loved ones can file a medical malpractice claim. In many cases, there are more than just one potentially liable party. While the doctor or nurse may have been at fault, the medical facility or another party, such as an anesthesiologist or radiologist, could also be found liable.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Some of the most common types of medical malpractice claims we handle at Gridley, Ward & Hamilton include:
- Surgical errors

Consequences of Medical Malpractice

In addition to the physical harm caused, many patients and their families must suffer through significant emotional trauma as a result.
