WHAT IS A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIM?

medical malpractice lawyers

Doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals have a duty to provide safe practices for patients and are responsible for providing competent treatment. Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is injured due to the negligence of their medical professional or medical care institution.

While it’s important to remember that doctors and other medical professionals are still human and a margin for error does exist as a result, they have a responsibility to meet the expected duty of care set forth by the medical community. If they fail to provide medical assistance that meets this expected duty of care, they place the patient at risk for severe injury or death. 

When talking about the “expected duty of care” or “standard of care”, it means that your doctor, nurse or other medical practitioner has the duty to provide reasonable treatment in the same way that another medical practitioner would have done in the same (or similar) circumstance. 

In instances arising from the failure to provide the appropriate standard of care, you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. This is because medical malpractice is a form of negligence which is the decisively indicative test for most personal injury cases. 

To succeed in your medical malpractice case, a lawyer will have to prove that an error committed during treatment (either an act or omission) led to injury or death. Your medical malpractice lawyers must also prove that another doctor in the same circumstances would have conducted themselves in a different way in order to provide the best standard of care to a patient.

A 2018 Johns Hopkins study claims more than 250,000 people in the United States die every year from medical errors that are completely preventable. And from 2009-2018, Florida claimed a spot in the top three states that took the lead in medical malpractice lawsuits. 

WHAT ARE THE COMMON CAUSES OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?

There are several common causes of medical malpractice cases:

  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to provide adequate treatment
  • Treatment delays
  • Childbirth injuries (to the child and the birthing parent)
  • Misdiagnoses 
  • Anesthesia errors 
  • Defective medical equipment
