Medical Malpractice

The main purpose of doctors, nurses, and the hospital staff is to care for the suffering patients. The substandard practices of individual healthcare facilities can cause even further injury or illness. These instances may warrant pursuing a medical malpractice case.
According to the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys, ABPLA, medical malpractice is defined in the following way:

"Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. The negligence might be the result of errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare, or health management."

The characteristics of a medical malpractice case include:

  • A violation of the standard of care.
  • An injury caused by negligence.
  • The injury results in significant damages.

Indications of medical malpractice include improper and mistaken diagnosis, failure to diagnose, failure to order the proper diagnostic tests, incorrect administration of drugs or treatment, misread lab reports or x-rays, failure to treat a patient in the first place, and more. Medical malpractice's long-term ramifications may vary from patient to patient but can range from minor injury to long-term disability and even death.
