What Amounts to Medical Malpractice?
A mistake or poor outcome is not necessarily indicative of medical malpractice or negligence. It will be necessary to show that a medical professional failed to perform his or her duties competently and with care. In many cases, it can be difficult to prove whether a medical professional caused harm to an already injured or ill patient, but an experienced attorney will often enlist the help of a medical expert to evaluate the patient’s claim, as well. Ultimately, the patient must provide evidence that he or she suffered physical pain, mental anguish, additional medical expenses, and/or lost earning capacity due to medical negligence.
What Are Common Types of Medical Malpractice?
A single moment of carelessness can have severe consequences for patients who rely on doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff to provide the best quality of care. Most medical malpractice claims involve the following errors:
- Failure to Diagnose
- Improper Treatment
- Prescription Drug Error
- Surgery Mistakes
- Birth Injuries
You should not have to suffer additional harm due to a doctor’s carelessness or wrongdoing. If you believe you are the victim of medical malpractice, you are well within your rights to hold the responsible party accountable.
How Can I Prove Medical Negligence?
