Medical Malpractice And Negligent Harm

Medical malpractice means that a medical professional or facility, such as a physician, nurse or hospital, has harmed a patient by either failing to do what the average professional or facility would have done under the circumstances, or by doing something that the average professional or facility would not have done under the circumstances.

If harm came to the patient in either way, the professional or facility has departed from the medical standard of care and is considered negligent (at fault). If the injured patient proves that the facility or professional was negligent, and that this negligence led to harm, the patient is entitled to recover compensation from the professional or medical facility.

Child Medical Malpractice

Often malpractice occurs at vital times when children are at their most vulnerable. Children may be harmed before, during or immediately after birth, such as by the failure to properly calculate fetus size, treat infection, respond to fetal distress, perform a C-section and properly administer medication. The results can be devastating, such as having a child born with brain injury, cerebral palsy, paralysis, brachial plexus injury, seizures, infection and more.

Aside from injuries to a child, the malpractice may also lead families to incur significant medical bills, costly future medical care and other expenses due to the medical professional’s actions.

Adult Medical Malpractice

As we age, we inevitably will run into circumstances where we seek treatment from medical professionals. A young mother may have breast cancer that goes undetected and untreated if a medical professional fails to perform a proper breast exam or order a proper test.

A grandfather may have a heart attack or have a stroke which goes untreated if a medical professional fails to take a thorough history, fails to perform a proper physical exam or fails to order or correctly interpret tests.

A husband may have colon cancer which goes undetected or untreated if a medical professional fails to properly order or perform a colonoscopy.

Patients sometimes suffer death or significant injury from these and other forms of malpractice, which can inevitably lead to significant emotional, physical, and economic harm.
