Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when health care professionals make a mistake that harms a patient they’re supposed to help. Even the smallest medical errors can have disastrous consequences. While medical malpractice can be a deliberate act, like amputating a healthy limb, it is often also a failure to act, such as not sanitizing equipment well or not diagnosing a deadly disease. Other common types of medical malpractice include:

Delay or failure in diagnosing a time-sensitive or serious disease

Failure to properly treat a disease

Botched surgeries or incorrect doses of anesthesia

Failure to care for a pregnant woman and her baby properly

Prescribing the wrong medication

Unnecessary surgery

In addition to the emotional and quality-of-life injuries that medical malpractice can cause, it can often be very expensive. A severe injury can put an individual out of work, require multiple surgeries, or require years of physical therapy. Permanent disabilities or disfigurement also affect the victim’s future. When medical professionals commit malpractice, the patients who trusted them end up dead, permanently disabled, or living with a significantly reduced quality of life.

Careless doctors can and should be held responsible for their negligent actions. Victims of medical malpractice may be able to recover the following:

Past and future medical expenses

Lost job earnings

Compensation for permanent disfigurement

Compensation for permanent disability

Loss of companionship

Other costs caused by medical negligence
