Medicine is a deep and complex field. In any field involving patient health, many different things have the potential to go wrong. Medical malpractice is any act where a medical professional’s negligence caused the death or injury of a patient.
Medical malpractice can be committed by a doctor, surgeon, nurse, or any other licensed health care provider. Negligence can be demonstrated through a number of different actions. As medical professionals, these workers are responsible for protecting the lives of their patients. And when death or injury occurs to one of these patients, it might be the result of medical malpractice.
Here are just a few of the examples of medical malpractice claims:
- A medical professional issued a delayed diagnosis, preventing the timely treatment of a disease or other condition
- A medical professional incorrectly administered anaesthesia, resulting in pain, injury, or death
- A medical professional failed to diagnose a medical condition, or treated a disease with improper procedure
- A medical professional issued a wrongful prescription, or a nurse administered the wrong prescription to a patient during treatment
When any of these actions occur, health professionals can be held accountable. A medical malpractice suit can win compensation for you or a loved one. This compensation can be used to cover pain and suffering, medical expenses, funeral expenses, and any other costs associated with injury or death. Medical professionals have a duty to safely and accurately diagnose the health of their patients, and when that duty is not fulfilled, these medical professionals are liable for their actions.
