What is Medical Malpractice?
For a case to be considered medical malpractice, it must meet certain criteria.
Below are some of the characteristics of a medical malpractice claim:
- The healthcare provider had a duty to you. For example, if you were filing a claim against a doctor, you must prove that the doctor was treating you. Doctors are expected to meet a certain standard of care.
- The duty the healthcare provider had to you was breached. In other words, the person who treated you failed to uphold the standard of care.
- The breach of duty resulted in injuries, such as physical impairment, deformity, or lost earning capacity.
- The injuries you sustained are directly connected to your healthcare provider’s failure to meet the standard of care.
Here are some common examples of medical malpractice:
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
- Childbirth injuries
- Prescription drug errors
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Failure to treat
Many cases of medical malpractice result in severe or catastrophic injuries, ultimately changing the life of a patient. Depending on who is responsible for the error and where you were being treated, one or more individuals may be liable for your injuries, including the doctor who treated you, the hospital in which you were admitted, or the pharmacist who gave you your medication.
