Medical malpractice occurs when physicians or other medical professionals fail to perform their duties in treating patients according to recognized standards of care. Examples of these cases include surgical negligence, failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, medication errors, nursing negligence and birth injuries.
Because medical malpractice often result in serious injuries and extensive losses, the law may allow injured individuals to recover compensation for pain and suffering, lost income, permanent injuries and other losses. Due to the complexity of these cases, it is wise for individuals injured as a result of medical negligence to see advice regarding their medical rights and legal options from an experienced personal injury attorney.
