What is Medical Malpractice?

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice refers to professional negligence by a healthcare provider that causes injury or death to a patient. It breaches the medical standard of care expected and differs from an unavoidable medical complication.

Key Elements of Medical Malpractice

For an incident to qualify as medical malpractice, these four legal elements typically need to be satisfied:

A Duty of Care was Owed

Licensed medical providers assume a duty of care owed to patients they serve based on their professional relationship. This obligates healthcare workers to meet standard medical care expectations.

Breach of the Duty of Care

If a practitioner fails to provide appropriate treatments, diagnosis, screenings or other aspects of care to a patient, this constitutes a breach against their duty of care.

Injury Occurred

As a direct result of the breach of duty, the patient must endure physical harm, financial damage or other quantifiable injury. Missing a life-threatening diagnosis that is later caught could still qualify as psychological injury.

Damage was Caused by Breach

There has to be a provable cause and effect between the breach of duty and injury for it to qualify as negligence. Expert testimonies are often used to demonstrate how poor standards of care led to patient suffering.

Examples of Potential Medical Malpractice

Some occurrences that might reflect medical negligence include:

  • Improper administration of anesthesia during surgery leading to brain damage
  • Failure to detect cancer or other illness on imaging tests
  • Birth-related injuries to baby during labor and delivery
  • Severe infections contracted in hospitals or clinics
Impact on Accident Victims

Due to malpractice, otherwise healthy people now live with chronic pain, lost ability to work, serious mobility issues and lower quality of life. Medical negligence law allows patients to hold providers financially accountable through personal injury claims or wrongful death lawsuits.

If you suspect you suffered harm due to substandard care, contact an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to explore your legal options. They conduct rigorous investigations to build strong cases for injured clients.
