Medical Malpractice

Wikipedia defines Medical Malpractice as: an act or omission by a health care provider which deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and which causes injury to the patient. Simply put, medical malpractice is professional negligence (by a healthcare provider) that causes an injury.

You may think that instances of medical malpractice are rare. Unfortunately, however, they are not. Indeed, an article in the Journal of the American Medicine Association indicates that medical malpractice is actually the third most common cause of death in the United States! More specifically, it revels that there are more than 225,000 deaths each year from:

  • Un-needed surgical procedures
  • Infections due to failure to maintain sanitary conditions in hospitals
  • Failure to administer proper medications
  • Failure to administer the proper dose of medication
  • Mistakes during surgery

In addition, hundreds of thousands more are injured each year due to medical malpractice, and it is estimated that close to one million cases go utterly unreported!

If you even suspect that you may have been injured by treatment you received or failed to receive from a medical professional, you need to contact a lawyer that works routinely with these types of claims. A medical malpractice lawyer can cut through all of the red tape, and help put your injury in perspective for you. He or she can first explain what in fact happened, help put you in touch with doctors and therapists who can help you to begin your recovery, and most importantly, guide you through the legal process and fight for your rights.

It is unreasonable to expect perfection, however medical practitioners must exercise the degree of care and skill that a physician or surgeon of the same medical specialty would use under similar circumstances.
