What Is Medical Malpractice?

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), medical malpractice is defined as any act or omission by a physician during the treatment of a patient that deviates from accepted forms of practice.

Medical malpractice can be committed by any medical professional – doctors, nurses, midwives, physical therapists, dentists, optometrists, etc. If you are receiving care from a medical professional, you are quite literally putting your life into their hands and deserve their utmost care, compassion, and professionalism at all times.

In a medical malpractice lawsuit, the victim has to prove three things:

However, if it is found that the patient also had an older injury to the arm that could have caused the pain, the defense lawyers may suggest that it wasn’t the radiologist’s negligence that directly caused the injury.

Once these three things are proven, damages will be awarded to the victim for medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, and more.

Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnoses happen when a medical professional fails to recognize symptoms, fails to examine the patient properly, or fails to order tests.

For example, if a doctor fails to recognize heart attack symptoms, he may send a patient home with a diagnosis of indigestion or a stomach bug. A medical error can lead to serious injuries and even death.
