While Harvard researchers found that less than one-half of 1% of the nation’s medical professionals face any serious sanctions each year, a more recent study bu the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences estimate that as many as 98,000 patients may be killed each year as a result of medical errors. In either case, when a medical error does occur the Institute of Medicine believes that one in five medical errors are potentially serious or fatal.
Common Types of Medical MalpracticeMedical malpractice can be divided into 3 categories: human factors, accident malpractice, and gross negligence malpractice. With human factors plaintiffs must show the doctor acted as no reasonable person would have done in the circumstances. With accident malpractice the doctors’ accident will be compared to accidents potentially made by other physicians in similar circumstance. And, with gross negligence malpractice the standard for gross negligence is negligence itself. A victim who needs lawsuit financing or a lawsuit advance can often obtain the following expenses:
- funeral and burial expenses
- costs for the payment of additional medical expenses
- loss of physical functionality
- equipment defects
- pain and suffering
- loss of consortium
- emotional damages
- other living expenses
Common Causes of Medical MalpracticeMedical errors can take place in any part of the United States health care system or in the course of any treatment plan involving hospitals, clinics, outpatient surgery centers, doctors’ offices, nursing homes, pharmacies, and patients’ homes involving medicines, surgery, diagnosis, equipment and lab reports.
The more common types of medical malpractice include Wrongful Death, Surgical Errors, Medication Errors, Medical Negligence, Emergency Room Errors, Delay in Diagnosis, or Misread or Improper Evaluation of Study.
