An Overview of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice refers to the negligence or wrongful acts committed by healthcare professionals that result in injury, illness or death to their patients. It occurs when a medical professional fails to adhere to the established standards of care while providing medical treatment. The key elements of medical malpractice include the duty of care owed by the medical professional, the breach of that duty, and the resulting injury or illness.

Medical professionals have a duty of care to provide treatment that meets the standards of practice in their field. This duty means they must exercise the same level of care that a reasonably competent healthcare professional would provide in similar circumstances. A breach of duty occurs if a medical professional fails to meet this duty, such as by making an error or omission during treatment. [1]

This breach of duty can lead to physical pain, emotional distress, disability, or death. In such cases, the patient has the right to seek damages, which can include compensation for medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

Medical malpractice can result in significant harm and devastating injuries for patients. When healthcare professionals fail to uphold the standard of care, patients can suffer a wide range of consequences. These consequences can include physical, emotional, and financial hardships.

These emotional consequences can be long-lasting, affecting the mental well-being of the patients and their loved ones, often leading to a loss of trust in the medical system and difficulty in seeking future medical treatment.
