What Is Medical Malpractice?

Generally, "malpractice" is defined as "the failure to exercise adequately, the skill, knowledge and care ordinarily possessed and exercised by other members of the profession acting under similar conditions and circumstances".

This does not mean that every time there is a "bad" or "unfortunate" outcome there has been malpractice. It doesn't mean that every time a professional gives "bad" or "wrong" advice that he/she is liable for malpractice.

Generally, the action (or inaction) that creates liability is the professional's failure to render professional services in a manner consistent with that of an ordinary or reasonable professional in the same or similar circumstances.

Types Of Medical Malpractice Injuries

How can I tell if my case is malpractice?

In most every situation, it takes an expert's opinion to assess malpractice. An expert in the particular field would assess the situation and give an opinion as to what the standard of care was and if that standard had been violated. Keep in mind that different experts may have different opinions.
