What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional or provider fails to meet the accepted standard of care when treating a patient, directly resulting in injury or harm. If you or a loved one suffered due to a medical mistake, you may have a malpractice claim.

Negligence is the Legal Basis for Medical Malpractice

Negligence is the Legal Basis for Medical Malpractice

For a medical malpractice claim to be valid in court, the injured patient must prove:

Duty of Care - The doctor or provider had a duty to treat the patient according to professionally recognized standards.

Breach of Duty - The healthcare professional violated or departed from the standard duty of care.

Causation - The breach of duty of care directly caused identifiable injuries or damages.

Injuries/Damages - Quantifiable economic and non-economic harm resulted, such as additional medical bills, lost wages, or pain/suffering.

When all four criteria can be established through an investigation, patients have a right to pursue compensation through a malpractice lawsuit or settlement.

Examples of Potential Medical Malpractice

Some examples of hospital, nursing, and physician negligence that may constitute grounds for a malpractice claim include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a serious health condition
  • Surgical errors and mistakes during invasive procedures
  • Childbirth injuries to baby or mother
  • Medication errors with incorrect or contraindicated prescriptions
  • Failure to prevent hospital-acquired infections

In essence, when avoidable medical error due to negligence leads to patient harm, malpractice may have occurred. A lawyer can fully investigate incident specifics to determine if you have sufficient grounds to pursue damages.

Seeking Accountability and Justice

Doctors, nurses, and hospitals carry medical liability insurance policies to compensate victims in cases of malpractice. By holding providers accountable for negligent care, patients not only receive rightful compensation but hopefully prevent the same mistakes from impacting future patients.
