Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyers Serving MS
Hattiesburg attorneys help victims recover full compensation
Physicians and other healthcare providers owe their patients a duty to provide a professional standard of care, demonstrating the same level of skill that fellow practitioners generally exercise. Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider breaches that duty through negligence or carelessness and causes injury to a patient. Medical malpractice victims may recover compensation for their injuries, including past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost income.
