When you are sick or injured, you rely on doctors, hospitals, and other health professionals to provide you with competent care. You put your life in their hands, and you should be able to trust them to handle your health with skill and compassion. Unfortunately, doctors are human, and they make mistakes like anyone else. If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence, you probably feel betrayed, anxious, and worried about the future.
In Connecticut, injured patients and their families have the right to obtain money damages for injuries and losses from a health care provider who has committed malpractice. State law defines medical malpractice as the failure of a health care provider to meet the applicable standard of care in the treatment of a patient.
