According to Connecticut law, medical malpractice is the deviation from the standard of care by a healthcare professional that causes permanent injury to the patient, including death. Cases of this nature are extremely complex and require a thorough investigation into the patient’s medical history and the level of care the patient received.
The term “malpractice” has a specific meaning in the law. We must prove that a health care provider’s conduct fell below the professional standard of care, and this has caused you or your loved one permanent harm. Health care providers who must act according to a professional standard of care include doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse midwives, chiropractors, physical therapists, dentists and others.
