All doctors and medical providers must follow a “standard of care,” meaning that they have the responsibility to treat their patients with the best care available and to inform them of alternative treatments and possible risks within their knowledge and available information.
Medical malpractice can be committed by any health care provider, not just a doctor.
Some of the most common medical malpractice claims we see are:
- The misdiagnosis of a medical condition or injury.
- The improper treatment for an illness or injury.
- The administration of the wrong medication.
- Failure to inform a patient of all risks involved with a treatment or procedure.
- Failure to inform a patient of all alternative treatments for a medical condition.
Medical malpractice cases are often complex.
A patient needs to prove that substandard medical care resulted in an injury.
