What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is a type of negligence occurring when a medical professional or medical facility fails to meet the standard of care based on the training and expertise of similar professionals and facilities. The legal standard for a medical malpractice case is quite high. The health care professional must have acted in a way that most competent professionals wouldn’t have and it caused harm or death.

What are some examples of medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice covers a wide range of issues, including, but not limited to:

  • Birth injuries
  • Emergency room errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Prescription errors and overdoses
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Improper consent
  • Hospital-acquired or post-surgical infections
  • Improper care and follow-up

These are serious issues that can subject a person to illness, injury, and even death. If you believe that negligence caused your ailment or the loss of a loved one, you may need to take legal action to protect yourself and your future.

How do I know if I have a medical malpractice case?

Medical malpractice cases are complex. It is crucial to have an attorney with the experience and knowledge of both the legal and medical field to evaluate your case. The above situations are serious, but they do not always meet the legal standard for a medical malpractice case. Mistakes happen in any profession. As stated above, medical malpractice cases are based on the standard met by peers. If your case is valid, you may be entitled to a range of damages.
