What is Medical Malpractice?

When you visit a doctor, you expect a highly trained professional to check for your symptoms, make an accurate diagnosis and carry out the right treatment. The Newark malpractice lawyers of Kirsch Gelband & Stone provide an overview of medical malpractice definitions.

Medical malpractice is defined as a deviation from an accepted standard of medical malpractice that results in serious injury or death. Many people fail to report medical malpractice, and some die from it without the cause ever being linked to medical malpractice. This is partly caused by not knowing what constitutes medical malpractice.

Any form of negligence on the part of a medical professional can seriously affect your health. For example, if a doctor fails to read all your medical history, he or she might prescribe medication that will react with some other medication that you are taking. That can worsen your medical condition, and even result in death. Or if a surgeon is not paying enough attention, many things can go wrong.

You have heard stories of operations on wrong sides, wrong limbs or forgotten instruments mistakenly left inside the body during operations.

Whether you were misdiagnosed by a doctor, had a surgeon that was negligent or have been prescribed a medication that harmed you, you may be entitled to compensation for damages that you suffered. Do not let confusion or fear hold you back from consulting with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.
