Mississippi medical malpractice is often defined as the failure of a medical professional to follow the accepted standards of practice in his or her profession, resulting in harm to the patient. Proof of failure to comply with accepted standards of medical practice typically requires the testimony of someone with expertise in the area of medical treatment and healthcare services. The Clarksdale medical malpractice attorney professionals at the law firm of Merkel & Cocke are experienced with the medical expectations and standards of care as recognized by the state of Mississippi.

Standards of care in Mississippi are usually established by expert testimony on how similarly qualified practitioners would have managed the patient’s care under the same or similar circumstances. At one time such standards were referred to as the “standard of care in the community” but, with the globalization of information and credentials, standards of care are now often considered to be national and not just simply related to the state of Mississippi or the Clarksdale metro area. There are, however, special circumstances, as when a community is physically isolated from the rest of the country, in which national standards of care may not apply.
