When there is professional negligence in the provision of healthcare, it is termed as medical malpractice. One of the most difficult cases to prosecute is a medical malpractice case. Often one needs to prove that either an omission or an action by the healthcare providers led to the professional negligence. In addition, there is a need to prove that the healthcare provider did not follow the standard of care that has been set. The professional negligence then leads to the death or injury of the patient.
Common Claims of Medical Malpractice
Some of the most common claims include the following:
- Surgical errors
- DVT or Pulmonary embolism
- Various infections and bed sores
- Diagnostic errors
- Failure to make proper diagnosis
- Medication and prescription errors
- Medical errors during emergencies
- LASIK malpractice
- Injuries during birthing process
Medical malpractice can be devastating to both the patient and his or her family. In order to prove malpractice there needs to be an expert medical witness giving testimony to the same. This is because the ordinary jury may not have the expertise to prove that the care given was wanting. As such, it is important that the evidence tabled in court against the health care provider or the medical practitioner be strong.
