Injury FAQ

What is Medical Malpractice?

The health care industry is massive and as a result, medical malpractice can take many forms. Defined simply, medical malpractice can refer to instances where doctors or other health care providers fail to meet the accepted standard of care when treating a patient. This commonly takes the following form:

  • A doctor or medical professional does something - or does not do something - that leads to a patient suffering an injury or some type of harm. The medical professional’s actions or failure to take action (omission) is also known as medical negligence.

When a medical professional’s conduct causes harm, injured victims may have the right to recover financial compensation for damages that result from the incident. This can include a victim’s economic damages and non-economic damages:

  • Economic Damages - economic damages are the financial losses victims experience as a result of their injury or illness. They often include medical bills and, if necessary, the cost of future care, lost work wages, and lost future income due to the injury.
  • Non-Economic Damages - non-economic damages refer to the intangible losses suffered by victims and their families, and they can be difficult to equate into monetary value. These damages can include pain and suffering, loss of quality or enjoyment of life, and the loss of companionship experienced by a victim’s loved ones.

It is important to understand that medical malpractice claims can be very challenging, as they involve complex medical information and because they are commonly handled by medical insurance companies that do everything in their power to pay victims as little as possible. With a proven attorney on your side, however, you can better level the playing field to recover the compensation you deserve.
