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.
