Connecticut Medical Malpractice Lawyers
At some point in every person's lifetime there is a need to seek medical care from a doctor, nurse or other health care provider. Unfortunately medical care is sometimes incompetent, resulting in injury to thousands of people every year as a result of preventable medical errors which is commonly referred to as medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice arises from simple negligence on the part of the health care provider. Because of the unique vulnerability of the person seeking care which by its nature is highly invasive, medical incompetency or malpractice can result in catastrophic disability leading to a lower quality of life or in more extreme cases of medical malpractice the incompetence can lead to death.
