Medical Malpractice


Errors made by healthcare providers can have an intense impact on a patient’s life, often causing substantial pain and suffering, permanent disabilities, and even death. Luckily, healthcare providers carrier significant insurance policies to pay for their mistakes and to compensate patients and their families. In order to obtain compensation for injuries sustained as a result of medical malpractice, you need an experienced and aggressive attorney to represent you in your fight against those powerful insurance companies. The lawyers at FROST & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you through this complicated process and will fight for the compensation and justice that you deserve.

Definition of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider “breaches the standard of care”, which is essentially negligence for doctors. The “standard of care” is what a reasonably competent healthcare provider, with similar training and experience, would do under the same or similar circumstances. When a healthcare care provider breaches the “standard of care,” and that negligence results in injury, a potential medical malpractice claim exists.

Recoverable Damages

Injuries that result from medical malpractice can give rise to a variety of recoverable damages, including:

Past and future pain and suffering

  • Past medical expenses
  • Past lost wages
