Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, pharmacy worker, surgeon, or other medical practitioner acts in a way that is not considered up to the standards of medical care, resulting in a patient sustaining further harm. Unfortunately for the victims of medical malpractice, there are many ways that medical professionals can – and do – act negligently.

What Is Considered To Be Medical Malpractice?

Unfortunately, medical malpractice cases occur with a fair amount of frequency in the U.S. Depending on what medical professional is responsible for the error and what actually occurs, a person can be the victim of one of many different types of medical malpractice. Some of the most common, however, include:

  • Wrong Diagnosis / Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed Treatment
  • Surgical Errors
  • Pharmaceutical Errors
  • Improper Treatment
  • Emergency Room Errors
  • Birth Injuries
  • Dental Malpractice
  • Hospital Negligence

Whether a person sustains harm due to one of these or another form of medical malpractice, the medical professional responsible for causing the harm might be held financially and legally responsible.
