Understanding Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice is a complex area of personal injury law and one that is often misconceived by those who feel their injury warrants a claim. Most medical procedures involve risk, and the unfavorable outcome of a medical procedure does not always constitute medical malpractice. In medical malpractice cases, there must be proven negligence on the part of the medical professional or health care provider. Medical malpractice can come in many forms. Medical errors in a clinical setting that led to either short or long term injury can be considered negligence. Operational mistakes resulting in injury, false prescriptions, and even the failure to diagnose a patient can all be constituted as negligence and could warrant a medical malpractice claim in some cases.
