What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to provide proper medical care or acts in a way which falls below the accepted standards or usual practices of the medical profession. There are many circumstances that can result in a medical malpractice claim, including:

  • An improper act or omission by a medical professional
  • Lack of proper or working medical equipment
  • Unreasonable delay in provision of treatment
  • Surgical errors
  • Misdiagnosis of a serious illness or health condition
  • Childbirth injuries
  • Medication errors or overdoses
  • Providing treatment without first obtaining informed consent
  • Wrongful death caused by medical malpractice

If you have been injured or someone you loved has died as a result of the acts or omissions of a healthcare provider you may be entitled to compensation.

How do Medical Malpractice Claims Work?

The primary purpose of a civil lawsuit is to obtain compensation for harm suffered as a result of another’s wrongful act. Medical malpractice lawsuits aim, as best as is possible with monetary compensation, to place the harmed individual in the position they would be if the malpractice had not occurred. 

To do this malpractice claims seek compensation for various consequences of the harm suffered. This includes compensation for emotional, physical and psychological pain and suffering, past and future costs of treatment, past lost earnings and loss of ability to work in the future, loss of the ability to take care of one’s children or home, as well as the loss of relationships.

In wrongful death claims, compensation is sought for loss of economic support, loss of household contributions, medical expenses incurred before death, burial and funeral costs as well as the loss of the care, companionship and support the individual provided before they died.
