What is Medical Malpractice?

We all have heard the term “medical malpractice”, but what does that mean? And who are victims of medical malpractice? By definition, medical malpractice simply means that a healthcare professional has been negligent and did not provide the standard level of care required of them.

In the United States, we have a culture of medicine and it is a regular part of our lives.  Hospitals, doctor’s offices, and nursing homes are all places we go to seek cures for what ails us.  From the common cold to getting an adjustment at the chiropractor, we entrust healthcare professionals with our well-being and with our lives.  When your trust is betrayed; when you have been injured through no fault of your own; you may have been a victim of medical negligence.

We Will Stand By and Stand Up For Our Clients

A 2016 John Hopkins University study found that medical errors kill as many as a quarter of a million Americans each year.  Medical errors are one of the top leading causes of death in the United States annually.  When hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, nurses and other healthcare providers make mistakes, those mistakes can be deadly or cause catastrophic injuries.  Sorrels Law is committed to helping those victims of medical malpractice whose lives have been shattered or lost.  We aggressively pursue those wrongdoers who make costly mistakes.  We recover compensation for our clients who have becomes victims of the healthcare field.
