Interview: Medical Malpractice vs Failed Procedure

, , ,

There’s a big difference between medical malpractice and a failed procedure. If a surgery, operation, or other form of treatment doesn’t have the desired effect, this may not necessarily be grounds to file a lawsuit. However, if the medical team deviates from the normal standard of care, or otherwise makes a serious error, then the patient could have grounds to file a medical malpractice suit.
