What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider “breaches the standard of care,” which is essentially negligence for doctors. The “standard of care” is what a reasonably competent healthcare provider, with similar training and experience, would do under the same or similar circumstances. When a healthcare care provider breaches the “standard of care,” and that negligence results in an injury, a potential medical malpractice claim exists.
Damages You Can Receive From a Wrongful Death Claim
Injuries that result from medical malpractice can give rise to a variety of recoverable damages, including:
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Past medical expenses
- Past lost wages
- Future medical expenses
- Future lost wages
- Loss of ability to perform household duties
- Loss of consortium
