What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is a term used to describe a medical professional deviating from the standards of his or her profession in such a way that the deviation causes injury to the patient. In other words, a patient may be able to file a medical malpractice claim if they were harmed by a medical professional’s negligent actions, inactions, or omissions. Likewise, the family of a deceased patient has the legal right to pursue damages if the negligent actions of a health care professional caused or contributed to their loved one’s death.

You can file claims against the following parties:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Technicians
  • Pathologists
  • Health care facilities
  • Nursing home facilities

Doctors, surgeons, and other medical staffers all owe a standard of duty to their patients. If one of these parties breaches the standard of care, they deserve to be held responsible for their actions for the sake of future patients. Unfortunately, medical providers – and their insurance companies – often contest medical malpractice claims to protect their business and save face in the greater community. For this reason, it’s important to retain the services of an experienced lawyer who can effectively litigate against these powerful entities and obtain justice on your behalf. At Massillamany Jeter & Carson LLP, our Fishers medical malpractice attorneys have decades of legal experience and an exhaustive understanding of pertinent laws and insurance company tactics.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Massillamany Jeter & Carson LLP represents all forms of medical malpractice claims, including:

  • Prescription errors
  • Defective medical devices (product liability)
  • Improper treatment
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Anesthesia injuries

Tragically, medical malpractice can even occur while a patient is in surgery. Wrong site surgery is a form of medical malpractice. This is when the surgeon performs surgery on the wrong spot on your body. This happens when the surgeon performs the operation on the wrong side of your body.

Another form of surgical medical malpractice is when the surgeon negligently forgets a surgical tool inside the patient’s body. This can cause harm to the patient and, more often than not, requires additional surgery and recovery time.

Birth injuries are another form. This occurs when a doctor’s negligence causes an infant physical harm upon their birth by not following the proper routine. Another common malpractice is when the doctor prescribes either the wrong type of prescription medication or an incorrect amount to a patient. This can have varying effects depending on the medication and the dosage prescribed.
