Healthcare shouldn’t have to hurt.
For more than 40 years, medical malpractice has been controversial from the viewpoints of the injured, the practitioner and the courts that rule on such cases. Whether it’s a bad headache to patching up a couple of stitches, we depend on our healthcare professionals for adequate care. We trust they know what is best for us. There are times, however, when that care becomes insufficient and results in the worst health problems, including death.
In order to meet the legal definition of medical malpractice, the doctor or medical provider was negligent in some way, meaning the doctor was not reasonably skillful or competent, and that incompetence harmed the patient. Here are some examples of medical malpractice:
- Doctor-Patient Confidentiality Breaches
- Injuries from Negligence in Assisted Living Facilities
- Medical Devices
- Medical Malpractice in a Hospital Setting
- Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis
- Practicing Medicine Without a License
- Prescription Drug and Medication Malpractice
- Surgical Errors
- Wrongful Death Due to Medical Malpractice
- X-Ray Radiation Overdose and Malpractice
