Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is an oversight or omission that results in injury or harm to the patient. Every year thousands of Americans are injured, hospitalized or die from medical mistakes due to wrong diagnosis, hospital negligence or prescription errors and the consequences to the patients and the families of affected individuals can be devastating. It is unfortunate that people are injured when receiving health care, but you should not expect to endure a life of pain and suffering because of someone else’s oversight or negligence. If you are hurt or made to suffer because of negligence you may be entitled to compensation for your distress and anguish. If you believe you have been the victim of medical malpractice consult a qualified personal injury attorney experienced in medical malpractice claims.

Medical malpractice occurs when a negligent act or omission by a doctor or other medical professional results in damage or harm to a patient. Negligence by a medical professional could include an error in a diagnosis, treatment, or illness management. If such negligence results in injury to a patient, a case could arise against the doctor if his or her actions deviated from generally accepted standards of practice; against the hospital for improper care, such as problems with medications, sanitation or nursing care; or against local, state or federal agencies that operate hospital facilities.

Medical malpractice laws are designed to protect patients' rights to pursue compensation if they are injured as the result of negligence. However, malpractice suits are often complex and costly to win. While theoretically, you can seek compensation for any injury caused by negligence, regardless of its seriousness, time and money make it unrealistic to sue for an injury that is minor or heals quickly. Therefore, if you believe you have a medical malpractice claim, it is important to consult with an attorney who can help you determine whether your claim is worth pursuing.
