Medical mal practice claims can arise because of many issues, but generally it is where a doctor or surgeon has done something that caused you injuries or exasperation of current injuries. Where such injury occurs, medical professionals have insurance for these very reasons and you will ultimately be covered for your injuries should you prevail in a lawsuit or settlement with such insurance. Common medical injuries include misdiagnosis of injuries, improper treatment of injuries, and infections encountered at the hospital or facility where surgery or other therapies is occurring.
Medical mal practice lawsuits are not reserved for doctors and surgeons only, medical mal practice suits can be filed against hospitals, chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, etc. However, these lawsuits are often very expensive due to the expert testimony and advice of other doctors that you will have to pay for. In order to have a medical mal practice suit the medical provider must have violated the standard of care expected of that provider and the treatment that a reasonable person in that expertise would have done. This means that the industry standard of care was not followed.
