What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to follow the medical standard of care required by his or her profession, causing injury to a patient. If you can prove that the medical professional's actions or inactions caused your injury, that he or she did not follow the medical standard of care for his or her profession, and that your injuries would not have occurred if the medical professional had not acted negligently, you can bring a medical malpractice claim.

Medical malpractice is any form of negligence causing medical injury. The area of medical negligence law covers a wide range of errors:

  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical/anesthesia errors
  • Failure to diagnose/misdiagnosis
  • Failure to recommend surgery
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Other medical malpractice cases
