Medical malpractice encompasses injury and death cases that resulted from a medical professional's negligence or carelessness. It isn't necessarily enough to have experienced a bad outcome or result from medical care; there must be a direct link to the medical professional's failure to meet the standard of care.
The following are some common examples of medical malpractice, although the list is not exhaustive:
- Birth injuries
- Prescription medication errors
- Surgical errors
- Wrong site/wrong side surgery
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to properly diagnose
- Delayed treatment
- Incorrect interpretation of test results
