Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is more common than patients might think. It occurs when a medical professional fails to provide the medically accepted standard of care to their patient resulting in harm and damages to that patient. Any medical professional may commit malpractice, not just a doctor or surgeon.

A medical malpractice claim might include any of the following:

  • Doctors
  • Dentists;
  • Anesthesiologists;
  • Cosmetic surgeons;
  • Pharmacists;
  • Chiropractors;
  • Nurses;
  • Physician Assistants;
  • Medical technicians;
  • Psychiatrists; and
  • Optometrists.

A medical facility may also be liable for medical malpractice.

Common Medical Malpractice Claims

The variety of medical practitioners and facilities open to medical malpractice claims vary significantly, as do the injuries. Some of the most common medical malpractice injuries involve:

  • Emergency room mistakes;
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis;
  • Surgical errors or unnecessary surgery;
  • Prescription errors;
  • Birth injuries;
  • Nursing home errors; and
  • Failure to monitor a patient.

Preventing Medical Malpractice

Many medical malpractice injuries are unpredictable. However, patients can take the following steps to help protect themselves from some forms of medical malpractice:

  • Research and get referrals from trusted sources before accepting new medical providers;
  • Have a trusted friend or family member attend medical appointments to listen and take notes; and
  •  Keep a personal log of any health changes.

Even the most meticulous patients can become the victims of medical malpractice. If you need a skilled team of Passaic County medical malpractice lawyers, contact the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to prepare your case for a fair and just recovery.
