What is Medical Malpractice?

The term “medical malpractice” defines incidents in which the negligence of a doctor or another medical professional causes injury to a patient. Medical malpractice cases often focus on the concept of “duty of care,” which is a doctor’s professional and legal responsibility to provide their patients with the best medical attention they possibly can. If there is evidence that a doctor failed to meet this standard, resulting in patient injury, they may be liable for medical malpractice damages, even if they thought they were doing what was right for their patient.

Filing a medical malpractice claim gives injured patients and their families an opportunity to find both compensation and closure. Malpractice-related injuries often require additional treatment to correct, contributing to added expenses for the affected family. Through a medical malpractice claim, you can recover compensation for the cost of the inadequate treatment and the cost of additional treatment, as well as compensation for other damages such as lost wages, travel costs, and more. Medical malpractice victims can also receive compensation for noneconomic damages resulting from their injuries, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, anxiety, stress, and depression.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Any negligence while diagnosing, treating, or caring for a patient could be a case of medical malpractice. Each piece of a patient’s treatment plan is essential, and a single moment of negligence can disrupt an entire healthcare plan.

Medical malpractice cases frequently involve incidents such as:

Who is Liable for Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice can be the result of a single doctor’s mistakes or an overall lack of oversight throughout a healthcare organization. Every person who is involved with treating a patient is responsible for their health and wellness, and, therefore, could be held liable for damages if a malpractice incident occurs.

Doctors and nurses who work directly with a patient are often primarily at fault due to their direct connection to each patient. The employers of doctors and nurses — such as hospitals, treatment centers, and other medical facilities — can share liability for failing to provide proper oversight and effectively allowing patients to be harmed under their administration.

In some cases, other parties such as pharmacists, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and testing companies are liable for medical malpractice. The negligence of these entities can lead to issues like inaccurate tests and medication errors that can cause patient harm.
