Frequently asked questions
What is a medical malpractice claim?
A medical malpractice claim is a claim of negligence committed by a professional health care provider - such as a doctor, nurse, dentist, technician, hospital or hospital worker - whose treatment of a patient departs from a standard of care met by those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient or patients.
Does someone who is not satisfied with the results of his or her surgery have a viable medical malpractice claim?
In general, there are no guarantees of medical results, and unexpected or unsuccessful results do not necessarily mean negligence occurred. To succeed in a medical malpractice case, a plaintiff has to show an injury or damages that resulted from the doctor’s deviation from the standard of care applicable to the procedure.
What should I do if I think I have a medical malpractice claim?
You should talk to a lawyer who specializes in such cases, as soon as possible. Tell the attorney exactly what happened, from your first visit to the doctor or other health care provider, through your last contact with him or her. If possible, obtain your medical records and bring them to your first meeting with the attorney. There are time limits governing how long someone may wait to bring a medical malpractice claim, so time is of the essence.
What is “informed consent”?
Do I have a case against a doctor who prescribed me a drug for treatment, but failed to tell me it was part of an experimental program?
Your physician had a duty to tell you that the drug was part of an experimental program, and you had the right to refuse to participate in it. You may have grounds for an action against your doctor based on his/her failure to obtain your “informed consent” relative to this treatment.
