Medical malpractice is a term that is given to a situation where any professional negligence occurs in the discharge of the services of a healthcare provider. Medical Malpractice cases are very difficult to prosecute. Hence the need for you to be clear about your rights at the outset. It is a professional negligence by the act or omission of a healthcare provider. Medical malpractice suits usually arise due to the action or omission of a medical practitioner or health care provider which results in professional negligence. In other words, medical malpractice occurs when any of the doctor, hospital, nurse, or other healthcare providers deviates from the set standard of care. In many cases, the negligence also results in injury or death. This is a devastating situation for the patient involved as well as the family members of the patient. Negligence must be proven through the use of the testimony of expert medical witnesses that the patient has to retain. This is so because in all cases of medical malpractice, the proof of want of care, which is the basis issue that must be resolved, are typically beyond the knowledge of the ordinary jury. The jury are lay members of the community who have to decide the case at the end of the trial. You must ensure that you have convincing strong evidence about the negligence of the medical practitioner or health care provider.
Some of the common medical malpractice claims include:
- Bed Sores (decubitus ulcers, pressure sores) and Infections
- Birth Injuries (cerebral palsy, erb’s palsy)
- Pharmacy and Prescription Medicine Errors
- Pulmonary Embolism or DVT
- Emergency Medical Errors
- Failure to Diagnose or Diagnostic Errors
- LASIK Malpractice
- Surgical Errors and more
