Malpractice claims arise when a physician or other medically trained person does not perform according to the standards of their profession. In many cases, harm may be concealed, even when a victim suspects a mistake. Patients may not want to get their doctor in trouble, or assume there is no legal remedy, but this is not the case.
Medical errors are far more common than may be suspected. Over fifty percent of mistakes are made in emergency medical situations. This is believed to be due to cutting corners. Too often, emergency room personnel rely on subsequent care to catch and fix their mistakes.
