What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when any healthcare professional deviates from the medically recognized standard of care in the treatment of a patient. Standard of care is a term used to define what a reasonably prudent medical professional would or would not do under the same or similar circumstances. Generally speaking, a malpractice claim exists if a provider’s negligence causes injury or damages to a patient.

It is important to note that not every medical error is medical malpractice. All medical professionals, even HMOs, and other health organizations, are subject to medical malpractice claims, including, but not limited to:

  • Doctors;
  • Surgeons;
  • Obstetricians;
  • Dentists;
  • Pharmacists;
  • Hospitals;
  • Nurses;
  • Medical technicians;
  • Physician’s assistants;
  • Anesthesiologists;
  • Pharmaceutical companies; and
  • Manufacturers of pharmaceutical devices.

Common medical malpractice claims include:

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose;
  • Birth injuries;
  • Surgical errors;
  • Medication errors;
  • Lack of informed consent; and
  • Anesthesia errors.

Compensation in a Medical Malpractice Claim

In a medical malpractice claim, the victim may is eligible to seek two types of compensation, economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages awarded in medical malpractice lawsuits are:

  • All injury-related medical expenses;
  • Lost wages; and
  • Loss of earning capacity.

Non-economic medical malpractice damages may vary but often include:

  • Pain and Suffering:
  • Loss of Consortium:
  • Disfigurement; and
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.
