Medical malpractice is defined as any act or omission by a medical professional during treatment of a patient that deviates from accepted norms of practice in the medical community and causes an injury to the patient. Medical malpractice is a specific subset of tort law that deals with professional negligence.
What Are the Most Common Medical Malpractice Claims?
Wrongful death occurs when a person is killed because of the neglect or other fault of another person. A wrongful death lawsuit allows surviving family members to seek justice on behalf of a loved one who passed away due to an act of carelessness or violence. Family members can recover both pecuniary and non-pecuniary damages in a wrongful death claim. Often, a personal representative of the deceased’s estate will be appointed during these claims.
Permanent injury occurs when a physical or mental impairment restrict the employment and other activities of a person for the rest of his/her life.
Sometimes soft tissue injuries can be permanent if a severe contusion is sustained to muscles, tendons or ligaments. They can cause lasting effects that never heal properly.
Permanent injuries can include scarring, disfigurement, or dismemberment. Brain injuries, nerve damage, spinal cord injuries, amputation, and burns are some common permanent injury claims.
In a lawsuit to recover damages caused by the negligence or intentional wrongful act of another, a permanent injury may be an important element in the award of general damages.
