While being dissatisfied with your medical treatment is not enough to support a medical malpractice claim, there are certain situations in which the care provided by a medical professional will deviate from the standard of care expected of reasonable providers in their fields of practice. When a doctor or another healthcare professional deviates from the expected standard of care and causes serious injuries or death, the victims or the family members of those who have died are entitled to pursue medical malpractice claims.
