Medical error, how to sue?

Reading time: 3 min.

Medical error is a serious offense that can significantly affect a patient's life. Most often, this occurs as a result of negligent performance of the duties of a medical worker, improper treatment or incorrect diagnosis. If you are a victim of medical malpractice, you should be given the opportunity to defend your rights and receive financial compensation.


What exactly is defined as a medical error?

Medical error is defined as non-compliance of the actions or decisions of a medical worker with accepted professional standards and rules of medical practice, which may lead to harm to the patient's health. This may include various aspects of medical activity, such as diagnosis, treatment, surgical procedures, prescription of drugs and provision of other medical services.For an event to be recognized as a medical error, it is necessary to prove that the medical professional acted or did not act in violation of the standards of professional medical practice, and this resulted in harm to the patient. It is also important to take into account that not all troubles in treatment are automatically considered medical errors, and there is a need to determine a direct connection between the actions of the medical worker and the deterioration of the patient's condition.Usually, medical errors can occur due to insufficient attention, incorrect interpretation of medical information, lack of adequate communication between medical personnel and the patient, or due to other violations of medical standards that could arise from negligence, fatigue or other circumstances.
