What is Medical Malpractice?

Orange County Medical Malpractice Attorney

Medical malpractice is a legal term that refers to some form of negligence or wrongdoing on the part of a professional in the field of medicine - any action or inaction that amounts to substandard medical care and causes injury to a patient. The injuries sustained as the result of medical malpractice may be physical or emotional in nature and may affect a patient in many different ways. As such, the victim of medical malpractice in Orange County, California has the right to file a claim or lawsuit against the responsible health care professional or facility in order to seek financial compensation for what he or she has endured or will endure. This may include money for medical bills, future medical expenses, any lost earnings, loss of future earnings, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, and possibly more. The families of patients who have lost their lives due to medical malpractice also have the right to file wrongful death claims for their loss.

The Parts of an Orange County Medical Malpractice Claim

A medical malpractice claim in Orange County will need to establish several key elements in order to successfully prove that the defendant (the doctor or hospital you are bringing a case against) committed malpractice. This includes:

  • The defendant had an obligation to the injured party (i.e. the injured party was a patient of the defendant);
  • The defendant acted or failed to act in such a manner as to constitute negligence, wrongdoing or any type of substandard care;
  • The patient was injured; and
  • The patient's injuries were caused by the defendant's act or failure to act.
