Medical Malpractice claims – A glimpse

Medical malpractice claims arises when a patient sustains damages as a result of negligent or substandard medical care provided by any medical provider such as a doctor, nurse, technician, therapist, hospital or medical worker. The “medical standard of care” is typically defined as the level and type of care that a reasonably competent and skilled health care professional, with a similar background and in the same medical community, would have provided under the circumstances that led to the alleged malpractice. Medical malpractice is a professional negligence by act of commission or omission by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient.

Basic factors in evaluating a claim
·         A duty was owed: a legal duty exists whenever a hospital or health care provider undertakes care or treatment of a patient.
·         A duty was breached: the provider failed to conform to the relevant standard care.
·         The breach caused an injury: The breach of duty was a proximate cause of the injury.
·         Resultant damages: Physical, emotional or financial

Statute of limitations
There is only a limited time during which a medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed. The time limits are set by statute in a common law. The length of the time period and when that period begins vary per jurisdiction and type of malpractice. Therefore, each state has different set of time limits.
