Medical Malpractice: Oklahoma medical malpractice is defined by an act or omission by a health care provider in which care provided deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury or wrongful death to the patient. Physician, nurse and hospital errors can leave patients with debilitating physical injuries. In addition to physical pain and suffering, large medical bills caused by repeated surgeries and ongoing physical therapy can cause financial strain. An injury may result in a lasting disability that makes it difficult to work and earn a living. Physical injuries can also make it painful or impossible to engage in the daily activities you once enjoyed. This lost enjoyment of life can take a mental and emotional toll on entire families.

  • Surgery errors: There are some mistakes, such as wrong-site surgery, that should never happen.
