What is Medical Malpractice?
When a healthcare provider causes injury to a patient by performing or neglecting to perform an act that deviates from the norms of care, this is known as medical malpractice. Strict criteria must be met in order for a case to classify as medical malpractice.
Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Taylor King Law in Jackson can help you determine whether you have a medical malpractice claim to pursue.

No one wants to consider the statistics regarding medical malpractice, but according to John Hopkins University researchers, medical error claims more than 251,000 lives each year.
