What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is the term used to describe the deviation of a medical professional from the standard of care, causing injuries or damage.

Identifying medical malpractice can be difficult as some cases are more apparent than others.

Examples of medical malpractice may include:

  • Overlooking and/or failing to diagnose a medical condition
  • Improper diagnosis of a medical condition
  • Incorrectly performed procedure/surgery
  • Improper treatment/surgery for a medical condition
  • Improper administration of anesthesia or medication

This list does not reflect all of the situations that could prompt a medical malpractice claim, but it does represent several common types of medical malpractice incidents.

Choosing the Right Attorney

While we are confident in our team’s ability to represent you, there are a few key questions that you should ask to help you identify the right attorney for you. You must trust that your lawyer has your interests in mind. The potential success of your medical malpractice claim could be determined by the attorney you choose to hire. Questions you should ask your attorney include:

  • How long have you practiced this type of law, and what is your experience with cases similar to mine?
  • Do you focus on other areas of the law, or do you focus specifically on medical malpractice?
  • What is the reasonable expectation of communication, and will that come from you or someone in your office?

After asking these questions, it is also a good idea to research the reputation of your attorney. This can include online reviews, word-of-mouth referrals, or other reputable research.

The answers to the questions and your research can help you identify an attorney’s experience, reputation, and how much personal care they may provide their clients. You want to feel secure that you have an attorney on your team that has your needs in mind.
