What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is the professional negligence of a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other health care provider, resulting in patient injury or death. “Negligence” can refer to any action or failure to act that falls outside of the provider’s duties of care. Malpractice can manifest in many forms. These can be physician incompetence, surgical or anesthesia error, medical mistakes, birth injury, misdiagnosis, or another medical care mistake. This would be a mistake a “reasonable and prudent” professional would not have made in similar situation.

The Most Common Types of Medical Malpractice Cases
Medical malpractice claims arise from many possible situations. A few of the most common types of medical malpractice claims include: misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, surgical errors, prescription medication errors, anesthesia errors, improper treatment, informed consent violations, provider’s negligence and hospital negligence.
Medical malpractice claims are typically more complex than standard personal injury claims. Going up against a doctor or hospital comes with specific laws and requirements. These are often to protect the health care provider from too much liability. This can make it difficult for injured patients to secure fair compensation.
