Medical Malpractice and Negligence
Healthcare providers are legally required to meet a set standard of care when treating their patients. These standards are designed to protect patients in a situation where they would otherwise be powerless.
Unfortunately, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals do not always meet this standard due to negligence. Healthcare professionals can be guilty of medical malpractice – sometimes called medical negligence – when their negligent actions injure a patient.
Injuries Associated with Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can result in many different injuries, including brain injuries and spine injuries. Patients may be injured while giving birth or if a doctor performs a surgical operation on the wrong body part. You could also suffer injuries caused by:
- Late Diagnoses
- Errors in Anesthesia
