What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a patient suffers significant and avoidable pain or illness because a doctor or other health care professional failed to act according to the profession’s accepted standards of care. Medical malpractice and hospital negligence claims may be brought against all types of doctors and health care professionals, including:
- Surgeons who make mistakes in operating rooms
- Emergency room doctors and nurses who commit errors in diagnosis or treatment
- Obstetricians and OB nurses whose negligence results in avoidable birth injury
- Generalists who fail to notice symptoms of serious illness
- Specialists whose negligence results in failure to diagnose cancer or delays the appropriate diagnosis
- Nurses who make medication mistakes or other errors during in-patient care
These medical mistakes can be devastating and cause long-term injuries with debilitating side effects. If you or a loved one is suffering as a result of a doctor’s negligence, do not hesitate to contact the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm today.
