Understanding Medical Malpractice

Professional negligence happens when the acts or omissions of a professional fall below the standard duty of care for that given field. Medical malpractice is professional negligence committed by any health care worker, including physicians, nurses, health aides, obstetricians, psychologists and emergency personnel.

Medical malpractice can take many forms, including:

  • Surgical mistakes

  • Delayed operations

  • Medication and dosage errors

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnosis

  • Birth trauma
  • Patient abuse and neglect

  • Unnecessary treatment

  • Inadequate follow-up or aftercare

  • Failure to order necessary tests

  • Disregarding a patient's history

  • Misreading or ignoring lab results

  • Premature discharge of a patient

Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the country, according to research from the Journal of the American Medical Association. Victims of medical negligence received over $3 billion in compensation in 2013 and many estimate that this represents only a small portion of the damages actually suffered by patients and their families.
