Medical Malpractice & Medical Negligence
Medical malpractice is a negligent act or omission committed by a healthcare provider whose treatment failed to meet the standard of care, causing harm to the patient. Medical malpractice is, however, not always immediately clear, as a misdiagnosis, failure to diagnosis or other type of negligence often take time to reveal themselves.
Damages in a Medical Malpractice Suit
It is prudent to consult a medical negligence attorney to help determine if you have grounds to file a suit. In order to have success in a medical malpractice claim the patient must prove that there was a departure from the standard of care and this departure resulted in harm and damages to the patient.
These damages can be physical, emotional and economic. Including the case with an illness or the loss of a limb/organ, or increased pain. Emotional damages such as distress and psychological issues. Economic damages such as lost wages, medical expenses, the cost of medical assistance and future losses of wages.
