What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice refers to any professional negligence through an act, an omission of an act, a general misdiagnosis, or any reckless treatment of a patient by a health care provider. This includes anyone from doctors to midwives, pharmacists, chiropractors, and dentists.
Since they aren't medical experts, your lawyers can't immediately tell you if you have a claim. However, they can help you send your records to a medical expert who will assess the situation and let you know if your medical professional's actions fell below a certain standard of care. Legal counsel can then help you choose the best course of action to proceed with your case.
Common Types of Medical Malpractices
The most common types of medical malpractice include surgical errors, cosmetic surgery malpractice, medication errors, medical misdiagnosis, birth injuries, and failure to diagnose. If you were given the wrong medication or suffered internal damage during a surgical procedure, you may have a case to make. Our medical malpractice lawyers in St. John’s are here to help you.
