How a Medical Malpractice Lawyer Can Help You

Medical malpractice claims are difficult to prove. That's because there is a strict legal definition of what actually qualifies as medical malpractice.

According to the American Bar Association, "Medical malpractice is negligence committed by a professional health care provider—a doctor, nurse, dentist, technician, hospital or hospital worker—whose performance of duties departs from a standard of practice of those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient or patients."

Your Delaware med mal lawyer can review the specific facts of your situation, speak with medical experts and help determine if the healthcare provider was negligent or within the standards of good medical practice.
