Medical Malpractice Law
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical Malpractice occurs when a medical professional or institution, through a negligent act or omission, causes a patient to undergo an injury or even death is the worst cases.
Negligence in this regard is the result of several factors including:
A Violation of the Standard of Care: It is understood that there are certain medical standards that need to be upheld by medical professionals as being acceptable medical treatment by a reasonable health care professional under similar conditions.
If it is determined that the standard of care was not followed, negligence may be established.
An Injury was caused by Negligence: Not only does a medical specialist have to violate the common standard of care, but injury has to occur.
The Injury Resulted in Significant Damages: Medical Malpractice suits are among the most expensive to litigate, they require the testimony of multiple experts and countless hours of deposition.
For a case to be recognized, the patient must prove that meaningful damages resulted from the treatment they received.
If the damages are too minor, the cost to pursue compensation may exceed the potential recovery.
To pursue a medical malpractice suit, it must be proven that:
- the patient has a disability
- there was a loss of income
- the patient or family incurred significant past and future medical expenses.
Once all three of these provisions are met, you have a legal right to pursue compensation for the damages suffered.
Common Reasons for Medical Malpractice
Missed or delayed diagnoses are a major forms of malpractice.
When a medical professional misdiagnoses a condition or fails to diagnose a condition, the patient may miss out on treatment opportunities that could have prevented harm.
If a patient is misdiagnosed, they may be given treatments or medications that do not suit their condition.
To establish a misdiagnosed case, your medical malpractice lawyer will need to prove how a competent doctor would have gone about diagnosing the condition accurately.
Medication Errors are a common form of negligence, and they occur in many fashions.
A Doctor can:
- Prescribe an improper drug
- Inappropriately deliver a drug
- Fail to notice potential drug contraindication
- Prescribe a drug the patient is allergic
- Provide the wrong dosage of a medication
There are numerous injuries caused during pregnancy or the childbirth process.
Some of the injuries are severe and cause a lifetime of suffering on behalf of the parents and child involved, some of these cases include:
- cerebral palsy
- seizure disorders
- fractured or broken bones
If a Doctor causes any of the above-listed conditions or fails to treat a condition, medical malpractice may be proven.
Even a minor error by the anesthesiologist can result in a persistent injury or death.
Typical causes for anesthesia mistakes include:
- failure to know the patient's medical history
- failure to notify the patient of necessary preoperative procedures
- giving the patient too much anesthesia
- failing to observe the patient's vital signs.
