What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when any healthcare practitioner causes injury to a patient through substandard care, whether through error, negligence, or oversight. These errors can lead to permanent injury or even death. There are numerous examples of what specifically falls under medical malpractice some examples include but are not limited to:
- Failure to diagnose
- Delayed diagnosis
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Unnecessary surgery
- Improper medication
- Improper follow-up care
- Misreading charts or test results

Medical malpractice is not limited to just doctors.
It is a common misconception that medical malpractice only applies to doctors and hospitals. Any medical professional whose errors, negligence, or oversight have caused you harm is liable. Medical professionals like dentists, pharmacists, nursing homes, pharmaceutical companies and more must be held accountable when they have betrayed the trust we place in them.
