Medical malpractice is a problem that thousands of people confront each year. Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional deviates from the standard of care that another similarly trained or similarly experienced professional should provide, resulting in harm or injury.
This means that if you end up injured or damaged as a result of a healthcare professional failing to perform as expected, you can commence a medical malpractice claim. Medical malpractice can occur when under the care of any healthcare professional or facility, including:
- Doctors’ offices
- Hospital workers
Medical malpractice takes many forms, and the consequences can be devastating and can have the power to change one’s life. The experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Mitchel I. Kirshbaum, P.A. have represented many different medical malpractice lawsuits, including:

Unfortunately, medical malpractice is more common than you think. Thousands of people are victims of medical malpractice each year.
Many times, people don’t file medical malpractice lawsuits because they believe that there is nothing they can do. Some medical malpractice patients also believe that because they signed a consent form, they cannot file lawsuits related to the case. This is totally untrue. A consent form does not give your healthcare professional permission to commit malpractice.
