What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice refers to any oversight, error, or blatant disregard for a patient’s health that ends up causing them harm. These injuries can not only cause physical damage, but they can also lead to expensive medical bills and emotional distress.
If a medical professional failed to provide you with the high-quality care you deserve, turn to Penny Law, LLC for representation. Attorney Troy R. Penny is well-versed in a variety of medical malpractice cases, including those that involve:
Failure to treat
Faulty medical devices
Other acts of negligence
It’s important to note that just a medical treatment or procedure doesn’t go according to plan, it doesn’t always mean it was a result of malpractice. Oftentimes, patients don’t survive a heart attack or cancer treatment, even when their medical team does everything possible to help them. In short, medical malpractice occurs when a mistake made by a health care provider directly causes harm to their patient.
Who Can Be Sued for Medical Malpractice?
Doctors are not the only ones who can be held responsible for medical malpractice. Because the main purpose of a medical malpractice case is to prove negligence led to a patient’s injury, any party involved may be held liable. This could include:
Paramedics and EMTs
Other medical facilities
Health care professionals are human, therefore, they are bound to make mistakes. However, when their mistake ends up harming a patient, they deserve to be held accountable.
In addition to health care providers, hospitals and other medical facilities can also be sued for their negligence. If its employee is involved in a medical malpractice case, a hospital may be investigated for things like:
Failure to conduct background checks of their applicants
Failure to cross-reference their applicants’ education, training, and licensing
Failure to address complaints against a medical professional they employ
Failure to maintain their premises or provide necessary medical equipment
