Hospital malpractice occurs when a patient visits the hospital, the hospital or staff performs below the accepted standard of care by action or inaction, and the patient is harmed in the process.
Hospital malpractice can have a wide range of consequences. Hospital errors are incredibly common and do not always cause noticeable harm. On the other end of the spectrum, you can go in for a minor problem or routine procedure and experience fatal injuries as a result of hospital malpractice.
Those who can recover from their injuries may experience a longer hospital stay, more extensive treatment and pain than would have been necessary if not for the error, and a much larger bill. The hospital may try to pass this off as a complication rather than the result of medical malpractice, and charge you for the extra care.
If you have been harmed by medical malpractice, you may be able to recover compensation for your economic and non-economic damages. In some cases, punitive damages may also be awarded.
Compensation for hospital malpractice could include:
Existing and future medical expenses created by the malpractice
Existing and future lost income
Diminished earning capacity
Permanent physical disability
Loss of familial, social, recreational and educational experiences
Emotional harm, such as stress, embarrassment, depression, or strains on family relationships
