What is medical malpractice?
Medical practitioners have a duty to provide their patients with a reasonable standard of care. When the level of care falls below a reasonable standard, causing the patient to suffer harm, it is known as medical malpractice (or medical negligence).
You do not expect to suffer at the hands of a medical professional, yet unfortunately, it does happen. Some common examples of medical malpractice include –
- Delay in diagnosis
- Surgical errors
- Wrong diagnosis/treatment
- Medication errors
- Anaesthesia errors
- Birth injuries
- Failure to obtain informed consent
Medical malpractice injuries
When you seek medical attention, you place your trust in the practitioner or organisation treating you. When this trust is misplaced, it is extremely upsetting, especially if you suffer harm as a result.
Sadly, medical malpractice can lead to life-long injuries, a poor prognosis and a prolonged recovery for the patient. Sometimes, medical errors cause catastrophic brain injuries, and even fatalities.
If this has happened to you or your loved one, we know how devastating it can be. Medical malpractice can change your life forever, causing physical, emotional and financial trauma. You should not have to deal with these consequences alone. That is why you are legally entitled to pursue a claim for compensation.
