Medical Malpractice FAQ

How Can I Tell If a Person Died from Medical Malpractice?

Are you concerned that a loved one may have died due to medical malpractice? If so, the following sections answer many of the questions that you may have.

The Legal Definition of Medical Malpractice

Legally, medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider (such as a physician) fails to adhere to the standard and level of care that is expected by similar healthcare providers, and injury or death results.

In assessing whether the standard or level of care was met, physicians will be judged against other physicians in their same practice area. Thus a cardiologist will be held to the standards of care of other cardiologists; oncologists will be held to the standard of care of other oncologists.
