A Momentary Mistake, A Lifetime Injury

Medical malpractice is a broad and complex topic. In simple terms, a doctor or other medical professional has a duty to you as a patient. That means that you are trusting them with your health and safety and the medical professional has the responsibility to only act in your best interest.

Unfortunately, some doctors do not act in your best interest. This could be as intentional as a family medicine doctor prescribing medications based on marketing by drug companies, or as accidental as a surgeon botching a surgical procedure.

In either event, the result is the same, the medical professional failed to uphold their duty to keep you safe. The effects of medical malpractice follow patients for the rest of their lives. A twitching scalpel can sever nerves and cause partial paralysis, a misdiagnosis can leave the underlying disease unchecked for years. In the most severe cases, the negligence or recklessness of medical professionals can lead to the pointless loss of the patient’s life.

What has been taken in these moments can be hard to fully comprehend. In addition to the obvious damage to your body, these malpractices can also lead to you being unable to work, unable to move, unable to live as you used to, or even killing you outright.

An experienced medical malpractice attorney can’t undo the damage of a negligent medical professional, but they can make sure that professional has to compensate you for the destruction that they caused.

Medical Malpractice Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is a civil wrong that occurs when a medical professional causes a specific kind of injury to a patient. In order to qualify as medical malpractice three elements must be demonstrated: There was a standard of care violation, a significant injury has occurred, the injury occurred as the result of negligence. The most common kinds of medical malpractice include childbirth injuries, medication errors, or misdiagnosis.

In order to show a standard of care violation, the patient must show that the medical practitioner departed from or failed to meet the level of care that a reasonable medical practitioner would have taken. Demonstrating a significant injury can involve proving that the injury caused you to suffer disability, loss of income, or unusual levels of pain and suffering. Finally, in order to demonstrate negligence it must be shown that the medical practitioner did not act as a reasonable professional would have and violated the duty of care that was owed to you.

2. How much does malpractice insurance cost?

Medical malpractice insurance ranges in cost depending on the state, area of practice, and other factors. On average, medical malpractice insurance plans cost approximately $7,500 annually but for some professions such as surgeons, premiums can reach as high as $50,000 per year. While this is expensive, the cost of paying attorney's fees and potential fines for malpractice can quickly outstrip the annual premium costs.

3. Who can be charged with medical malpractice?

There are many parties who can be sued for medical malpractice. There are practitioners who interact with the patient such as anesthesiologists, chiropractors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, physicians, or surgeons. Additionally, the hospital or corporation that employs these practitioners may be sued as well as pharmaceutical companies that make the drug. The primary limit for who can be sued is whether or not you can establish liability for an injury. If a state has “vicarious liability” laws, then an employer can be held accountable for the negligent actions of an employee.
