Medical Malpractice: What To Know

Not every unfavorable result from a doctor or another professional indicates malpractice. The term medical malpractice refers to actions or lack of action that causes harm to a patient. To have an actionable case, you must be able to demonstrate that your doctor, nurse or health care facility failed to meet the accepted standard of care when treating you.

What Are Some Medical Malpractice Examples?

Though medical negligence is rare, it still occurs far too frequently. Some of the most common cases that occur include:

  • Medication errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Birth injuries
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Nursing errors
  • Inadequate sanitation

Any of these examples can lead to serious injury or even fatality. Unfortunately, proving medical malpractice is very difficult. It requires an attorney who has handled many similar cases and understands New York’s medical malpractice laws.
