Common Forms of Malpractice

Every action taken in a hospital or other professional care environment should be carefully considered and deliberate. Reckless or poorly thought out care is wildly negligent and can lead to extremely serious effects, such as the following:

  • Surgical errors
  • Improper or delayed treatment
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Emergency room errors
  • Failure to diagnose

Such medical malpractice might occur at a hospital, general practitioner’s office, dental office, or even at a walk-in clinic.

Any of these can have devastating effects on a victim and their family, and may result in a serious financial burden due to the negligence of another party. With legal intervention, you may be able to recover compensation for this unjust cost.

Who May be Held Responsible for Medical Malpractice?

Some medical procedures may only involve a nurse and general practitioner while others require an entire team to assist in during a serious procedure.

Some specialists who may be involved in a malpractice claim include:

  • Surgeons
  • Obstetricians/Gynecologists
  • Nurses
  • Dentists/Dental Surgeons

Proving Medical Malpractice

There are certain elements that must be proved in order to have a successful medical malpractice case. The most basic element that should be proven is duty of care which is simply that the doctor-patient relationships existed and that person owed you a legal duty of care under the circumstances.

The following three elements must also be proven.

Negligence – Doctors are bound to follow a certain standard level of care, failing to do so could mean the health care professional acted negligently. In a medical malpractice claim it should be proven that the doctor acted in a manner that a competent doctor would not have.

Causation – The health care professional’s negligence caused further damages whether it led to physical or mental ailments, prolonged hospital stay, and more. 

Damages – Due to the doctor’s negligence the victim suffered damages such as increased medical expenses, chronic pain, and so on.
