Medical malpractice is the legal term for any procedure performed by a medical professional that results in a client’s injury, undue pain or suffering. Most incidents that lead to situations of medical malpractice are known in the health care profession as ‘medical errors’—that is, adverse events that could have been prevented by the health care professional. Common examples of medical malpractice are: treatment and medication errors, surgical mistakes, misdiagnoses, and anesthesia blunders.
Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim
A medical malpractice claim is based on proving that a medical error occurred that was caused by an indiscretion or lack of oversight on the part of the medical professional—which makes the medical entity liable for your injuries and damages. Sustaining a medical malpractice incident can lead to a host of problems, including higher medical bills, extra time missed from work, a prolonged period of recovery, as well as physical pain and emotional anguish.
If you think you’ve experienced medical malpractice, it is important to contact a lawyer for expert legal representation. Most medical practitioners and facilities are insured through medical insurance companies who have teams of lawyers to defend their position. As a patient who has been treated unfairly, you need the strong support and expert legal guidance of a professional lawyer to defend your rights.
