Medical malpractice refers to an event in which a hospital or health care professional acted negligently and caused a patient to suffer harm. First, a medical malpractice claim seeks to show how the hospital and/or person violated a medical standard of care. Health care facilities and professionals owe a duty of care to their patients. In other words, they must uphold standards that prevent errors.
Second, a medical malpractice claim seeks to show that the medical negligence caused an injury. A variety of health care errors can cause harm. Some include:
These and other types of negligence can lead a person to suffer catastrophic, lifelong, and sometimes fatal injuries.
Finally, a medical malpractice claim must show that the negligent act and resulting injury led to damages. Those damages might be disability, past and future medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and more.
