Hawaii Medical Malpractice Attorneys

What Is Medical Malpractice/Negligence?

When you visit a doctor’s office, hospital, or another type of medical facility, you are trusting that the professionals there are qualified to diagnose and treat your condition or injury in an adequate manner. Unfortunately, thousands of patients suffer unnecessary injury every year due to medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice happens when a health care provider such as a doctor does something that competent doctors would not have done or fails to do what a competent doctor would have done, resulting in injury or death. Negligent acts or omissions by doctors, nurses, and other medical workers can have severe consequences, often exacerbating an existing condition, causing a new illness or injury, or even leading to fatalities. If you suspect that you or a family member has been the victim of medical malpractice, you should contact an experienced Hawaii medical malpractice attorney to discuss a possible case as soon as possible.
