Malpractice Claims: The Basics
In the most basic terms, medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, or some other medical professional, ignores, or simply fails to follow, established medical procedures. Malpractice can take many forms, including a:
- Medication error such as giving the wrong dosage or incorrect medication
- Surgical error and/or medical mistake
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a medical condition
- Birth injury, which can lead to a brain injury or nerve damage
These accidents and nonstandard practices can result in illness, injury and, in some cases, death. If a loved one dies, however, you may be able to file a wrongful death suit.
In any case, medical malpractice claims can be quite complex, which is why it is best to contact a lawyer to learn what legal options may be available.
