Medical Malpractice

Have You Been a Victim of Medical Malpractice?

By definition, medical malpractice is a legal form of action that stems from the irresponsibility or negligence of a health care professional. Doctors, nurses, and health care professionals who defy or deviate from the accepted standards and cause harm to a patient can be held liable for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Negligent medical errors can come in many forms. These include an inaccurate diagnosis, as well as wrong medication dosage, treatment, aftercare, and overall health management. In addition, medical malpractice can occur on many levels, such as failure to take appropriate action or providing substandard treatment. Medical malpractice has serious consequences: it can cause harm or injury, and it can even cause the death of a patient.

There are several kinds of medical professionals who can commit negligence. We have grouped them into three different categories to give you a clearer picture.

Medical Practitioners

Licensed medical practitioners have the potential to make the most serious mistakes because of their stature in the field. They are comprised of surgeons, physicians, dentists, and psychiatrists.


Licensed nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants are also capable of committing medical malpractice. This is because they have direct and frequent contact with patients.

Allied Health Professionals

Allied health professionals consist of psychologists, pharmacists, chiropractors, osteopaths, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, and optometrists.


Legal Aspects of Medical Malpractice

The most important step in solidifying a medical malpractice case is identifying and establishing the acts or omissions that the doctor, nurse, or allied health professional has committed. Whether he or she failed to provide the correct treatment for a medical condition or committed a misdiagnosis, there should be legal consequences.
