Medical Malpractice Claim
A medical malpractice claim arises when an injury results from the action or inaction of a medical person or facility. Medical professionals like doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers are liable for injuries to a patient under the medical malpractice claim.
A medical professional may be held liable for injuries in several instances such as the negligent prescription of medication or device, when the manufacturer’s instructions are ignored, or when an incorrect medication or dosage was prescribed - acts which resulted in injury to a person.
Like other personal injury cases, a medical malpractice claim falls under negligence. To be considered negligent, a medical professional’s conduct must be shown to be below the generally-accepted standard of medical care.
To establish the standard to be applied, the victim must present testimony of another qualified medical expert who is in the same area of medicine as the liable party. In addition, a victim must also present expert testimony to establish that this standard was not met.
Pursuing a medical malpractice claim may be difficult without the assistance of a lawyer who is trained and experienced to handle a similar case.
