The most common type of professional malpractice is medical malpractice, which usually involves a physician or another health care professional that has been negligent while diagnosing, treating, or advising a patient. Unlike other types of malpractice cases, such as accounting malpractice, architectural malpractice, and engineering malpractice, medical malpractice cases usually involve serious personal injury or death.
Injury cases involving medical malpractice are not cases that you want to pursue without the representation of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.

Common Grounds for Medical Malpractice:
- Physician malpractice
- Anesthesia Errors
- Birthing Malpractice and Injuries, including Cerebral Palsy
- Hospital Errors
- Surgical Errors
- Failure to Obtain Informed Consent
Medical professionals are supposed to undergo specialized training and study before they can treat anyone. They must exercise a level of judgment and skill that is beyond the knowledge and abilities of lay people.
When a person is injured or dies because a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or any other health care provider was negligent, reckless, or lacked the skills and knowledge to properly treat a patient, the injured patient or the surviving family members of the deceased may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Many local physicians are unwilling to testify against their peers. For this reason, courts now use a national standard for professional conduct as a guide when deciding the outcome of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
