Holding Medical Providers Responsible for Professional Negligence
Medical malpractice refers to a wide range of negligent medical practices. Physicians, nurses, hospitals, and hospital staff owe particular duties of care to patients. When a medical provider fails to fulfill their duties, and such failure results in injury to a patient, the medical provider is liable to the patient for damages resulting from those injuries.
For example, physicians are expected to fulfill the following duties:
- Diagnose patients accurately
- Provide adequate and appropriate medical treatment
- Obtain informed consent for treatment and procedures
- Provide proper follow-up care
- Examine or treat patients with a demonstrated need for medical care
When a physician breaches one of those duties and consequently causes harm to their patient, the physician will be liable for medical malpractice.
A patient who was injured as a result of medical malpractice is entitled to compensatory damages for losses, including
- Costs for remedial medical treatment
- Lost earnings
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship (in wrongful death cases)
