5 Examples of Medical Malpractice

Wagner Reese

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical practitioner fails to provide the required standard of care to a patient. This may result in a serious, long-term injury for the patient.

Medical malpractice takes many forms, and each form has the potential to severely impact a victim’s life.

Get informed on five examples of medical malpractice and how to protect your rights if you have suffered from it.

Common Forms of Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, many patients experience an injury as a result of medical malpractice each year. According to the Diederich Healthcare 2015 Medical Malpractice Payout Analysis, insurance companies paid out nearly $4 million for medical malpractice claims in 2014.

Five common forms of medical malpractice include the following:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Medication errors
  • Surgery errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Incorrect or delayed diagnosis
