What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs anytime that a patient receiving treatment is
harmed by a doctor or a nurse who does not provide the proper medical
care. When a patient receives care,
a doctor owes a level of legal responsibility to the patient to provide that care; when this agreement is breached and an injury results, the patient is
entitled to compensation for the incident. Important to proving a medical
malpractice case is showing that another competent doctor, in a similar
situation, would not have performed in the way your particular doctor did.
There are many ways that doctors are nurses do not uphold the standard
of level of medical care that they should. From diagnosing the wrong disease
to making a surgical mistake, to misreading a chart, any error made can
be life-changing or even fatal.
Some of the most common medical malpractice mistakes include:
- Emergency room errors
- Postoperative care mistakes
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Prescription mistakes
When any mistake is made, the results can be devastating. From the medical
care you must receive to treat the malpractice to the physical and emotional
toll that your body may be suffering with, you cannot waste time with
lawyers that will not dedicate their time and resources to your case.
