What is medical malpractice?

The term "medical malpractice" refers to any act of negligence committed by a member of the medical profession. You might assume that doctors and surgeons are the only persons that commit medical negligence. In reality, all members of the medical field are responsible for patient safety; thus, any medical professional can commit negligence, including:

  • Physicians
  • Eye doctors
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Pharmacists
  • Nurses

Who can I sue for medical malpractice?

Depending on the nature of your accident, you may be able to sue 1) the negligent car provider, 2) the hospital, or 3) the negligent worker's employer. While many medical malpractice suits are aimed at a specific doctor, others target the doctor's supervisor or hospital.

  • Vicarious Liability - Hospitals, doctors' offices and other medical facilities are obligated to hire qualified employees. If the hospital negligently hired an under-qualified employee, you may be able to sue for compensation. This is vicarious liability.

Medical Malpractice & Pharmaceutical Companies

In some cases, big pharmaceutical companies are responsible for patient injuries. Generally speaking, drug manufacturers owe their primary duty to doctors and physicians – not patients. However, the pharmaceutical company is responsible for the mediation's safety. If the manufacturer believes that the medication could result in an adverse side effect (when used properly), it should warn physicians of the potential risk.

The drug manufacturer must:

  • Research the drug for side effects
  • Convey potential risks to doctors, nurses, and physicians

In the event of a medication / pharmaceutical error, the manufacture may be responsible for any illnesses and injuries that occurred because the company failed to fulfill one or both of these obligations. In short, you may be able to sue the manufacturing company for failure to warn.
