What is Medical Malpractice?

“Medical malpractice” describes incidents in which the negligence of a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional causes injury to a patient. The definition of medical malpractice is based on a “standard of care” that all people who work in healthcare must adhere to. Essentially, all people who provide medical care must do whatever they can to provide their patients with proper treatment. The failure to do this is the result of negligence, and responsible parties can be held liable for damages.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Sadly, negligence is not limited to treatment. Although many medical errors do occur during hospital stays or when a patient is undergoing a surgical procedure, negligence can happen at any step of a patient’s treatment. Even negligence early in the process can cause injury to a patient later on.

A medical malpractice case may focus on incidents such as:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Birth injury
  • Emergency room errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to treat
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Postoperative negligence
  • Surgical errors

Who is Liable for Medical Malpractice?

In many cases, the people who are responsible for administering treatment to patients are liable for medical malpractice. This may include doctors, nurses, physical therapists, anesthesiologists, surgeons, and others who work directly with patients. Additionally, the administrators of hospitals, urgent care facilities, and other medical centers are often held liable as well because they are responsible for overseeing their staff and providing them with resources. Inexperience or lack of preparedness can lead to malpractice and patient injury.

Parties who do not directly administer treatment, but are partially responsible for a patient’s health, can be held liable for medical malpractice as well. Pharmacists, for example, do not administer treatment to patients but are responsible for their health. The negligence of a pharmacist can cause injury to patients.

Companies who produce drugs and medical devices or provide testing services to healthcare facilities can also be held liable for medical malpractice if defective products are partially responsible for a patient’s injuries.

If you believe you did not receive proper medical care and were injured as a result, the negligence of those responsible should not be ignored. You are entitled to compensation as the victim of medical malpractice.

WHY YOU MAY BENEFIT FROM A DOCTOR IN YOUR COURTROOM

  • WE UNDERSTAND YOUR INJURIES, BECAUSE WE’VE LIKELY TREATED THEM.

    Most of our physician-attorneys are either current or past treating doctors in, collectively, a wide range of medical specialties. There is a good chance one or more of our physician attorneys have actually treated medical conditions similar to the ones from which you or your loved one now suffers. That translates into care and understanding as your Counselors, and know-how as your Advocates.

  • TIME- AND COST-SAVINGS FOR YOUR CASE

    Any honest medical malpractice attorney will tell you that one of the greatest expenses in a medical malpractice case is having to pay physician experts to study the details of the medical issues in your case and, if necessary, provide testimony at deposition and trial. While even our physician attorneys may also need to hire outside medical experts for your case, our medical know-how allows us to perform a significant amount of the medical analysis necessary for your case in-house which may translate into significant savings at the conclusion of your case.

  • RAPID RESPONSE WITH SOLID ANSWERS TO YOUR SERIOUS QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR CASE

    Because we have in-house medical know-how, we can evaluate the medical questions in your case and provide answers without a lengthy wait. Our internal process involves getting the issues in your case quickly in front of the right physician attorney who, based on his or her medical experience and training, is most likely to have the answers you seek about whether you have a case and how we might help you get the compensation you deserve to help secure a brighter future for you and for your loved ones.
