What is Medical Malpractice?

Q. What is medical malpractice?

A. Medical malpractice is a broad term generally used to describe medical treatment that fails to meet the required standard of care resulting in harm to a patient. Medical malpractice can also be a failure to treat a patient when such failure results in harm. In a Kentucky medical malpractice case, it is the failure to meet the required standard of care that defines negligence. Kentucky medical malpractice cases are pursued when that negligence causes significant injury or damages. It is likely that all three of these factors (negligence, causation, damages) must occur before a Kentucky attorney that pursues medical malpractice cases will consider taking your case.
