What Is Medical Malpractice?

Most people have heard the term “medical malpractice” before, but many are unsure of what conditions constitute it. Medical malpractice has occurred when a healthcare professional, such as a doctor or hospital, injures a patient through an act of negligence or an act of omission, or through treatment below the "standard of care."

There are a variety of circumstances that qualify as medical malpractice, including:

  • Misdiagnosis or the failure to diagnose, including the failure to recognize symptoms
  • Misreading lab results or ignoring lab results
  • Failure to order appropriate testing
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Surgical mistakes and errors, such as performing surgery at the wrong site
  • Premature discharge
  • Errors and negligence during aftercare
  • Lack of proper patient follow-up

If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, it is a good idea to consult an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as you become aware of the situation. Under the California Code of Civil Procedure section 340.5, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice is three years after the date of injury or one year after the person bringing the suit discovers the injury. While there are some exceptions to this statute of limitations, it is crucial that you do not delay and contact a lawyer to help you with your case.
