When a physician provides treatment to his or her patients, the care must be at a level that is recognized by equally qualified physicians as rising to the “standard of care” for similar physicians under similar situations. A failure of the physician to meet this standard, resulting in harm to a patient, may give rise to a claim against the physician, his group or the hospital where the treatment was rendered. Examples of medical malpractice include: failure to diagnose cancer or other diseases; surgical errors; improper prescription of medication; failure to get informed consent; and, birth-related injuries.
Although physicians are required to notify their patients of errors, many do not do so. Further, there are significant legal limitations in medical malpractice claims that can act to completely bar otherwise meritorious claims. It is important, therefore, that you speak with an attorney as soon as you suspect that you or a family member has received inappropriate care.
