What Are Medical Malpractice And Medical Negligence?
Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, is an error on the part of medical professionals or health care providers that results in an injury to a patient. Perpetrators can include doctors, nurses, midwives, therapists, chiropractors, hospitals and clinics, among others. It can be devastating for patients and their families. Medical malpractice or medical negligence can come in a variety of medical errors, including:
- Failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosis
- Surgical errors
- Medication errors
- Birth Injuries
- Dangerous drugs and defective devices
- Anesthesia errors
- Emergency errors
- Nursing home abuse/neglect
- Wrongful death
Be aware that there are strict time limits you must meet to file a lawsuit. Courts strictly enforce these complex time limits. Generally, in Ohio, there is only one year to bring a medical malpractice claim, unless an exception applies. It is in your best interest to speak to an attorney as soon as possible.
How Do I Prove Medical Negligence?
To prove negligence in a medical malpractice lawsuit, you must first show the existence of a medical provider-patient relationship, which establishes the medical provider’s duty of care. Then, you must show the medical provider violated the accepted standard of care. Finally, you must prove that this specific violation resulted in serious harm to the patient. In other words, malpractice occurs when a medical care provider fails to provide care within the requisite standard of care, which leads to injury or death.
