Medical malpractice is more common than many of us would like to believe. Did you know that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer? Health care providers such as doctors and hospitals are required to meet certain standards of acceptable care. When they fail to do so, and a person is injured or dies as a result, a medical malpractice claim arises. Medical malpractice can consist of many things, including:
- Failing to properly diagnose a disease or condition
- Negligently performing treatment or surgery to treat the condition
- Failing to properly advise the patient of risks associated with a particular treatment
- Performing treatment or surgery which was not authorized by the patient
- Birth injuries
