Understanding Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice refers to any action on the part of a medical practitioner which fails to meet the expected standards of the medical profession and which results in a patient’s injury or illness. Such actions affect hundreds of thousands of patients every year across the country. Unfortunately, victims of malpractice are often left with significant medical costs that they may not be able to afford. That’s why pursuing a lawsuit can be so important for malpractice victims.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Malpractice is a classification that encompasses many different issues. It can include errors resulting from negligence or generally unsafe behaviors. Some claims may include:
- Wrong Diagnosis
- Delayed Treatment
- Improper Treatment
- Lack of Informed Consent
- Surgical Errors
- Emergency Room Errors
- Pharmaceutical Errors
- Hospital Negligence
All of these types of medical negligence can have serious consequences for patients and their loved ones. For this reason, doctors and other medical professionals who are responsible for allowing these issues to occur can be held accountable for their actions.
