When it comes to personal health, patients entrust their medical care and well-being to highly trained medical professionals. In most cases this shared commitment to the patient’s well-being results in successful diagnosis and an effective treatment plan with appropriate medical care. However, at times misdiagnoses, substandard care, or other forms of professional negligence can occur and result in serious and lasting harmful consequences for patients and their families.
Medical Malpractice Claims
Medical malpractice can occur in all areas of medicine, including physician care, nursing care, dentistry, and pharmacy, and can involve treatment mistakes such as:
- Failure to diagnose
- Improper or incorrect treatment
- Failure to treat
- Surgical error
- Delayed diagnosis or treatment
- Surgery or procedure performed without informed consent
- Prescription error
Legal Counsel for Medical Malpractice Claims
Adverse outcomes alone are not enough to trigger a medical malpractice claim. Rather, it is only when medical treatment falls below the minimally acceptable standard of care within the medical community that a medical mistake may give rise to a medical malpractice action. Navigating complicated medical malpractice claims can be a daunting endeavor for plaintiffs and defendants alike.
