Many victims of medical malpractice may be unaware that their experience may be a case of medical malpractice. There are three main signs that you might have a medical malpractice claim including lack of informed consent, extraordinary consequences, or a healthcare provider informs you of the mistake.
If a procedure was performed without your express consent, you may have a medical malpractice case. Similarly, if there were errors in the operating room such as medical equipment that was unaccounted for and later found in the patient, you may want to discuss your case with a medical malpractice attorney.
Medical malpractice may be defined as a failure to provide a standard level of care to a patient. To go into further detail, it may include an act or failure to act that constitutes a deviation from acceptable care that a reasonable medical professional would have provided in the same or similar circumstances.
