Every year, countless Americans are injured or die due to the mistakes made by a healthcare professional. When a healthcare professional acts in a negligent manner, leading to the injury or death of the patient, it is called medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice can happen in hospitals, medical clinics, private surgeries and more. At The Law Offices of Darren T. Moore, we know that medical malpractice is life-changing and leads to loss of income, pain, long term medical bills, ongoing medical needs, and emotional distress.
Any healthcare professional who violates the standard of care should be held liable for their actions.

Causes of medical malpractice
One of the main reasons behind medical malpractice is poor preoperative care, violation of health standards and surgical errors. At the beginning of each case, medical professionals evaluate your medical history, family medical history, current health and other things relevant to your procedure. Incorrect evaluation can lead to medical malpractice. Other causes include:
- Nerve damage
- Incorrect application of anesthesia
- Wrong incisions
- Post-operative infections
- Extreme delays in the healing
- Use of unsterile equipment
- Accidentally leaving surgical instruments or sponges in the body cavity
