MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Medical malpractice, in its most simplistic form, is a legal claim occurring when a medical professional, such as a doctor or a nurse, deviates from the standards in his/her profession and it caused an injury to a patient.

The key factors to prove a medical malpractice case other than the patient getting hurt are a showing that:

  • A doctor or another medical professional made a mistake, and
  • You were harmed by that mistake

MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE

The mistake or omission can happen at any time during medical treatment. For example, your doctor may make a mistake diagnosing your illness, or she may not give you the proper treatment or medication for that illness. The key here is the standard of care. This is the generally accepted method or methods used by other medical professionals in the area to treat or care for patients under the same or similar circumstances.
