What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?
According to a study conducted by Johns Hopkins, medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the U.S.
Medical malpractice is the failure to provide a patient with care that meets the industrywide standard. If a court finds that the actions of a physician or other medical professional are contrary to what most medical professionals would have done, they may be liable for damages associated with those injuries.
When most people think of medical malpractice, they think of an improperly or poorly performed medical procedure. While this is true, a medical practitioner or facility may also be liable for the following:
- Delayed or missed diagnosis
- Improper treatment after diagnosis
- Ignored complaints of symptoms
- Errors in the emergency room
- Surgical errors and complications
- Birth injury
- Prescription errors
- Anesthesia errors
