California Medical Malpractice Attorney
The American Bar Association assigns a practical definition to medical malpractice which reads as follows:
“Negligence committed by a professional health care provider—a doctor, nurse, dentist, technician, hospital or hospital worker—whose performance of duties departs from a standard of practice of those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient or patients.”
Between 15,000 and 19,000 malpractice claims are filed against doctors annually, with approximately 31% of the cases having recorded fatalities. In 2012, around $3.6 billion was spent in medical malpractice payouts.
Most medical malpractice cases filed in U.S. courts witness negligence on the following counts:
- Failure to diagnose
- Improper treatment
- Failure to inform a patient of known health risks
