What are the most common grounds for medical malpractice claims?



Medical malpractice is defined as a violation in the standard of care by a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional. Some of the most common examples of medical malpractice and negligence include damages caused by incorrect diagnoses, incorrect surgical procedures, delay of treatment, and medication errors. However, if there is any situation where the patient is suffering from unexpected side effects, illnesses, or disabilities after receiving medical attention, this should be brought to the attention of an attorney. If you have questions about your legal rights, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
