Are Healthcare Providers Liable For Medical Malpractice?


Medical malpractice claims are difficult to pursue and even harder to win without the right legal team. Watch our latest video for more information.

"Health care providers are liable for medical malpractice when they engage in care that falls below a standard. If that standard is breached, then that medical care provider can be held liable. Hospitals are only responsible for the negligence or malpractice committed by their employees. And for each hospital, that can mean something different. More often than not, doctors working at the hospital are independent contractors and they are not employed by the hospital. Often times a hospital is not responsible or held liable for negligence committed by the doctors. However, if there's negligence committed by a nurse or another employee of the hospital, then the hospital can be held responsible for that negligence."
