“Medical Malpractice” is when a doctor or medical professional does something unreasonable or something that similar professionals would not have done, resulting in serious harm or death. Examples of malpractice that can result in serious harm or death are surgical or anesthesia mistakes, nursing home abuse or neglect, misuse of implants or medical devices, failure or delay in diagnosing a disease or condition, or labor and delivery mistakes, just to name a few.
Most doctors and other medical professionals are competent, caring, and compassionate people who help us live longer and healthier. Nevertheless, every year about 100,000 Americans die as a result of avoidable medical mistakes. Many more suffer permanent injuries or disabilities because of avoidable medical mistakes.
Not every bad outcome is because of medical malpractice. Sometimes a medical professional did everything right, and you still have a bad result. That is because there is always some risk with certain procedures, no matter how well the procedure is performed. If there is a bad outcome – or even death – it does not automatically mean the medical professional has done something wrong.
If you think you or a loved one has a medical malpractice case, an attorney can help answer your questions and explain your options. Medical malpractice cases are stressful, expensive, and can last for years. The question is not just if you have a medical malpractice case. The more important question is often to ask if you are emotionally and financially prepared for a medical malpractice case.
