What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice can result from a number of scenarios. Some of the more common examples of medical malpractice include:
- Misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis of a condition or illness
- Failure to properly monitor a patient, including anesthesia mistakes
- Improper or insufficient treatment
- Nursing error, such as failing to report a change in patient condition
- Failure to treat or a delay in treatment
- Medication errors
- Failing to provide important information or to obtain the appropriate consent
- Mistakes made during surgery
- Nursing errors such as failing to following a doctor’s orders for treatment
- Failure to perform the appropriate follow-up treatment
Proving Your Medical Malpractice Case
In order to be successful with your medical malpractice case, you must establish a doctor/patient relationship (or relationship with any medical provider who caused you harm). You must then prove that he or she was negligent in the level of care you received, and that this negligence directly caused you to suffer.
You will also need expert medical witnesses to testify on your behalf, and help prove the medical professional’s negligence. But any medical expert won’t do. You must find licensed physicians who are familiar with the standard of acceptable medical care for your particular type of case.
These experts must establish:
- What the standard of care was
- How the defendant violated this standard
- What damage and injuries resulted from this substandard care
