When you seek medical treatment, you place your trust in the hands of the healthcare professional and expect that you will receive the high quality care you deserve. Unfortunately, there are many instances where doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other medical professionals provide negligent care. If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligent care of a medical professional, you may be entitled to receive compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional provides care that does not meet the standards established by the medical community, resulting in an injury to the patient. It is important to understand that not every unsuccessful treatment outcome qualifies as medical malpractice. There are certain instances where patients receive top-notch care, but complications still arise. In order to achieve a successful outcome to your claim, you will need to be able to prove that your injury was caused by medical negligence and not just due to the risks associated with your treatment.
There are a variety of ways in which medical malpractice can occur. Some of the most common include:
- Emergency room errors
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Birth Injuries
- Medication errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Hospital errors
- Nursing errors
- Lack of Informed Consent
