Bronx Medical Malpractice Attorney
Defining Medical Malpractice
The mission of every medical professional should be to improve their patients' health and save lives to the best of their ability. Sometimes, no matter what a medical professional does, no improvement can be made on a patient's condition. However, if a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional causes injury or wrongful death as a result of negligence or intent, he or she could be held liable for compensation.
The Hippocratic Oath
When a medical professional receives their degree, they are often required to make an oath to protect their patients' lives and help them get well to the best of their ability. This is known as the Hippocratic Oath and has been a tradition since the time of Ancient Greece, though it has undergone many revisions.
