Medical Malpractice

Medical MalpracticeMedical malpractice can occur in many different manners. It can happen as a result of a delay in treatment, a failure to diagnose, a botched surgery, and numerous other scenarios. Not all errors of medical diagnosis or treatment are necessarily malpractice. There are certain risks that arise in the practice of medicine. The fact that there is a poor outcome does not necessarily mean that the physician or facility can be held liable.

To be held liable, the physician or facility must have fallen below the “standard of care.” Not only must the doctor have caused an injury, but the injury must result from not following the proper standard of care. A health care provider’s actions are measured against other caregiver’s actions. If the health care provider is a board certified specialist, then his/her actions would be measured against other board certified specialists.

Medical malpractice claims must be filed within a certain time period. If the claims are not filed within these time limits, then the patient or his/her family will forever lose their right to bring a claim.
