Medical malpractice occurs when a physician or other health care provider violates the standard of care in treating a patient. The standard of care includes the physician’s, or other health care provider’s, obligation to treat the patient, consult with other physicians, keep adequate patient records, and communicate any potential risks to the patient. Physicians are responsible for providing correct action, but they may also be held responsible for failure to take appropriate action. Medical malpractice also occurs from an action taken by the medical practitioner, or by the failure to take a medically appropriate action. Examples of medical malpractice include:
- Failure to diagnose, or misdiagnosis of a disease or medical condition;
- Failure to provide appropriate treatment for a medical condition;
- Unreasonable delay in treating a diagnosed medical condition.
It is very important that your attorney has extensive experience in medical malpractice cases. Since these cases are often the most complicated, it is also very important that you maintain detailed records and documentation of the events as they occur. Medical malpractice law is a high technical, specialized field. If your case is very technical, you will need an appropriately specialized lawyer. If you feel you or a loved one have been injured due to a doctor’s malpractice, turn to Turner & Turner to protect your rights.
