When doesa health care provider'sfailure to treat an infection become medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is when a medical provider has not acted in accordance with recognized standards of care. Typically, when a patient is diagnosed with infection, a course of treatment with antibiotics is required. If your infection was diagnosed as some other type of illness, if you were given an antibiotic that was not proper for your type of infection, or if your health care provider was slow in diagnosing your infection, then you may have a case of medical malpractice. We specialize in representing clients who have suffered from not being properly treated for an infection, when that infection has grown into complex medical problems.
