Medical Malpractice

To recover damages in an action for medical malpractice, a patient must demonstrate that there was a deviation or departure from the accepted standard of care and evidence that the deviation or departure by the medical doctor, hospital or health care professional was a proximate cause of the injury or damage to the patient. Examples of the types of medical malpractice include: (i) misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose a disease; (ii) where a doctor ignores results from the laboratory or misreads the results; (iii) the hospital, doctor or health professional performs surgery which was not necessary; (iv) errors committed during a procedure or surgery, or operating on a wrong body part (such as a health limb or organ); (v) prescribing too much medication or the wrong medication. This is especially common now during the opioid epidemic where doctors are overprescribing pain killers (Percocet, Vicodin, Oxycontin, Oxycodone, Morphine) which may lead to a fatal overdose); (vi) discharging a patient from the hospital or doctor’s care prematurely and prior to a reasonable time period; (vii) not recognizing a patient’s symptoms and the failure to order the correct testing.
