What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when physicians, healthcare providers, or hospital personnel make a medical error or mistake, and this negligence results permanent disability, serious injury, or death. Doctors and healthcare providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients. While a simple mistake is usually not enough to constitute negligence, a death or serious injury caused by the failure to meet minimum standards of care may constitute medical malpractice. Medical negligence cases may include claims against a health care provider or hospital for improper care, medication errors, missed or delayed diagnoses, surgical errors, or improper nursing care, just to name a few examples. A medical practitioner may also be legally liable if a patient does not give "informed consent" to a medical procedure that results in harm to the patient, even if the procedure is performed properly.
