What Is Medical Malpractice?
When a medical professional or healthcare provider acts negligently or recklessly and fails to uphold the standard of care, patients can be injured. This is considered medical malpractice, and the injured patients may be able to seek compensation through a medical malpractice claim.
Common medical malpractice cases include:
- Diagnosis errors or the failure to diagnose
- Failing to order or perform necessary tests
- Errors in treatment or failing to treat
- Surgical errors and surgery at the wrong site
- Unnecessary surgery
- Aftercare errors or omission of required aftercare
- Prescription errors, improper medication, or flawed dosages
Many healthcare professionals and providers – such as doctors, nursing homes, and hospitals – have extensive resources to fight medical malpractice suits.
