What parties may be held liable in a medical malpractice suit?

Medical malpractice occurs when your doctor or someone on the medical team makes a mistake during your treatment. It can happen during the diagnostic, treatment, surgical or after-care phase of your medical treatment. Medical malpractice can happen for all sorts of reasons, like if your doctor misdiagnosed your disease, if the surgeon operated on the wrong body part or if a nurse gave you the improper dosage of medication. Doctors and nurses deal in life and death, hence why they receive extensive education, training and continued training at their hospital. If you or a loved one is injured due to a medical team's negligence, then you may have a claim for medical malpractice.

Misdiagnosis lawsuits require experienced law firms

People trust doctors. Even in the age of the Internet with the world's information a finger tap away, people still put their faith in doctors. This is especially true when you don't know what is wrong with your loved one. Contrary to TV show House M.D., diagnosing an illness can take weeks or months. Diagnostic doctors are asked to solve a problem without being able to see the variables.

What does standard of care mean?

Doctors are judged based on a national standard of care. The standard of care is the procedure and skill to which every American doctor should possess. If a doctor is a specialist, then it is the standard of care for that specialty. This standard holds doctors to a minimum level of competency when treating their patients. These standards are set by national boards that govern the rules and ethics for medical malpractice.
