Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, arises when your healthcare provider, including nurses, hospital staff and physicians, fail to follow the proper medical procedures which leads to injury, harm and damage.
A successful medical malpractice case requires that the patient – the plaintiff – prove the following:
1. A physician-patient relationship, which leads to a duty of care;
2. Breach of the standard of care;
3. Causation (the breach of the standard or care caused the damages); and
As patients, we place our trust in our physicians and the medical system. However, substandard medical care can cause serious and lasting injury to a patient, such as:
- Cerebral palsy (CP).
- Erb’s palsy.
- Shoulder dystocia.
- Infant brain damage and hypoxic brain injury.
- Surgical errors causing nerve or organ damage and malfunction.
- Quadriplegia or paraplegia.
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of cancer, stroke, infection or heart attack
