Every doctor, surgeon, nurse, and other medical professional is held to a strict code and the highest standards to ensure that patients are protected from undue injury and illness caused by avoidable mistakes.

When a patient does suffer a serious injury or passes away due to the errors of a medical practitioner, it is crucial that they are held accountable through a personal injury claim in pursuit of maximized compensation. In many regards, the only way doctors and hospitals learn from tragic mistakes is by having to use their own finances to set things right.

What is Malpractice?

If we define malpractice, it happens when a medical professional causes an injury to a patient through a negligent act or omission. The negligence may happen due to an error in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare, and even in health management.

For a valid medical malpractice case, your claim must show the following:

  • There was a violation of standard care. Injury law acknowledges that medical professionals perform based on specific medical standards. If it is determined that your healthcare provider did not meet that standard of care, then there may have been negligence in your case.
  • An injury was caused by the negligence of a medical professional. You must be able to show proof that you sustained an injury that would not have happened if there was no negligence. If your plastic surgery did not meet your desired outcome, then that is not malpractice -- there needs to have been negligence that caused damage.
  • Significant damages resulted from the injury/negligence. Medical malpractice cases are typically very expensive. If your damages are not significant, then the cost of a lawsuit might be greater than what you recover. If your injury caused you to suffer hardship, lose your job, become permanently disabled, or have serious past, current, and future medical bills, then you most likely have a malpractice case on your hands.

What Are the Causes & Consequences of Common Medical Malpractice Errors?

Medical malpractice may be committed in a wide variety of ways. Essentially, if a doctor or medical professional is expected to complete a certain procedure, any deviation from the accepted standard of care or process is technically medical malpractice.

Even if a patient is not injured by the deviation, it is still entirely unacceptable to act in such a way without permission from a medical board.

Our Topeka medical malpractice lawyers handle all types of cases, such as:
