Medical Malpractice

A medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional, hospital, or doctor, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. When an injury is sustained, short term or long term, it may have been a result from the errors in diagnosis, treatment, after care or health management. It is the health care providers responsibility to have a reliable practice and to ensure the safety of their patients.

To be considered medical malpractice under the law, the claim must have the following characteristics:

  • A violation of the standard of care – The physician must meet the standard of care.
  • An injury was caused by the negligence – The patient must also prove he or she sustained an injury that would not have occurred if the standard of care was honored, and if there was negligence.
  • The injury resulted in significant damages – To pursue a medical malpractice claim, the patient must show that the injury resulted in disability, loss of income, unusual pain, suffering, and or significant past and future medical bills.

Some examples of a medial malpractice are below:

  • Nursing home neglect
  • Pharmacy errors
  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
  • Misreading or ignoring laboratory results
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Surgical errors or wrong site surgery
  • Improper medication or dosage
  • Poor follow-up or aftercare
  • Premature discharge
  • Disregarding or not taking appropriate patient history
  • Failure to order proper testing
  • Failure to recognize symptoms
