Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is injured or suffers an unnecessary complication due to a mistake of a health care professional. The effects of a medical malpractice can be life threatening and long-term. A failure to diagnose or late diagnosis may prevent a patient from recovering from a potentially treatable condition.
Essentially, medical malpractice means that a health care professional failed to meet the standard of care that a similarly trained, experienced person would have provided under the same circumstances. Failure to meet the standard of care harmed the patient.
There are many different forms of medical malpractice. The following are just a few types of medical malpractice cases where medical malpractice is or may be involved:
- Birth Related Injuries
- Brain Injuries
- Surgical Errors
- Late Diagnosis
- Cerebral Palsy
- Medication Errors
- Emergency Room Errors
