When a medical professional or institution fails to provide the accepted standards of care resulting in illness or injury, it can lead to a medical malpractice claim. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is more common than we think, with medical errors comprising the third leading cause of death in America.
Errors can occur in any medical facility that involves a professional who provides care for the sick or injured. All medical professionals owe their patients a duty of providing the accepted standards of care as established by the medical industry. When they fail to do so out of negligence, they can be held accountable for their actions or omissions.
Examples of medical malpractice include:
- Improper diagnosis
- Delayed diagnosis
- Birth injuries
- Prescription or pharmacy errors
- Hospital infections
- Emergency room errors
