Medical malpractice refers to the negligence or errors committed by healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel, which result in harm, injury, or death of a patient.
Medical malpractice includes a variety of situations, such as misdiagnosis, medication errors, surgical mistakes, birth injuries, and failure to diagnose a condition, among others.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are complex and require experienced attorneys to navigate the laws and standards of medical care.
To win a medical malpractice case, a plaintiff must prove that the medical professional breached the standard of care, meaning that they did not provide the level of care that a reasonable medical professional in the same situation would have provided.
Additionally, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the breach of care led to their injury or harm.
Medical malpractice cases have significant implications for both patients and healthcare professionals.
Patients who have been harmed by medical malpractice may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Healthcare professionals may face loss of medical license, damage to their reputation, and financial penalties.
A hospital, doctor, or other health care professional is not liable for all the harm a patient might suffer. They are only legally responsible for harm or injuries that result from their deviating from the quality of care that a competent doctor would typically provide in similar situations, and which resulted in harm or injury for the patient.
