What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice refers to the professional negligence by healthcare professionals or providers in which treatment provided was substandard, and caused injury or death to a patient. In the case of medical malpractice, the error may have been a negligent act or an act of omission. When evaluating whether or not you have a medical malpractice claim, it’s important to note that doctors don’t commit malpractice just because their efforts were unsuccessful or were not perfect; the doctor’s degree of care, skill, or diligence must fall below the average standard of care in the community for the same or similar circumstances. Medical malpractice can include, but isn’t limited to:
- Failed gallbladder surgery
- Childbirth complications
- Failure to diagnose serious health conditions
- Anesthesia errors
- Postoperative negligence
- Emergency room errors
