MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Medical Malpractice occurs, when a doctor, a nurse or other medical professionals fail to provide proper medical care and treatment to a patient. In other words, when medical professionals negligently fail to act or to adhere to the set standard and protocols, they could be held legally liable for their negligent act or omission.

Medical Malpractice cases are generally processed via Civil Lawsuits under Tort Law, which is designed to compensate the victims for damages they have suffered.

Please note: In a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit, the victim (Plaintiff) has the burden of proving that the medical professional made a treatment error, which does not “reasonably” comply with the medical community’s set standards. In other words, the doctor, nurse, etc., was not reasonably skillful and competent; this incompetence and lack of skill caused the harm to the patient.

THERE ARE MANY GROUNDS FOR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASES. HERE ARE SOME:

Medical Malpractice has become a pandemic problem in hospitals and medical facilities throughout the United States: so much so that hundreds of thousands of People die or become severely harmed from preventable mistakes. According to a 2006 study, medication errors harm approximately 1.5 million people in the United States, every year!

This is a tragic paradox, since vulnerable people enter medical facilities with the hope and trust to be cared for and nurtured back to health!

Here are some consequences of medical malpractice:

  • Birth Defects
  • Chronic Pain
  • Childbirth injuries
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Increased medical expenses
  • Infertility
  • Impotency
  • Loss of vision
  • Loss of limbs
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of opportunity to learn and earn
  • Lost wages/ loss of employment
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnoses
  • Mental harm
  • Preventable Death

A medical malpractice issue may arise, when a medical professional such as a doctor, nurse, technician or other related professionals fail to keep up with the reasonably expected standards in their field of practice. According to a 2013 research about 440,000 Americans die, every year, from hospital errors. Millions of others suffer unnecessary pain and preventable injuries. However, just because a medical professional makes a mistake or a patient is not satisfied with the result of a treatment is not ground for a successful medical malpractice lawsuit. In other words, the patient or the attorney must prove that the medical provider was negligent. This means that the treating professional did not have the reasonable skills or competency to treat the patient, and such negligence harmed caused damages.

In such situations the treating medical professional is negligent for not making the right diagnosis or does so, when it is too late.

If the victim can prove that a reasonably skilled and competent medical professional, under attendant circumstances, would have timely made such diagnosis and prescribed an appropriate course of treatment, then the victim may have a viable Medical Malpractice Case.

If a medical professional, during treatment, causes injuries to a pregnant woman or her baby prior to birth, the victim/s may have grounds to file a Medical Malpractice claim.

In such cases a doctor or an obstetrician could make a mistake during childbirth process.

According to research approximately 1.5 million Americans sustain injuries from wrongly prescribed or inappropriately administered drugs, every year.

Sometimes an anesthesiologist may make a mistake, usually very dangerous, during medical treatments. Unfortunately, a minute error by an anesthesiologist can result in permanent injury, brain damage or even death.

Some medical malpractice claims arise from mistakes made in the operating room. A surgeon might negligently puncture an internal organ, operate on the wrong body part, or leave surgical instruments in the victim’s body.

When it comes to Medical Malpractice cases, there is a limited window of time during which, a Plaintiff must file his or her lawsuit. This time limit is referred to as the “Statute of Limitation” and it varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
