Injury Law What does it mean when someone says "injury law"? Injury law is broadly defined as the area of law that deals with people's injuries caused by the negligence of others, including injuries from accidents, medical malpractice, negligence, etc.

Medical Malpractice

More people die each year from medical mistakes than from motor vehicle accidents or breast cancer. A study by the Institute of Medicine estimates that medical errors in hospitals result in 40,000 to 98,000 deaths each year. Up to 7,000 people die from errors in prescribing medicine. One of the best tools to attempt to correct this crisis in medicine is to hold negligent hospitals and physicians accountable for their mistakes. Please see the Institute of Medicine or the American Medical Association.

Medical Malpractice occurs when a health care provider fails to act with a reasonable standard of care and causes a new or aggravated injury to the patient. Some examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Failure or delay in diagnosing or misdiagnosis of a medical condition
  • Surgical or anesthesia related mishap during an operation
  • Failure to gain the "informed consent" of the patient (failing to disclose to the patient the risks associated with the procedure)
  • Failure to manage a pregnancy or deliver a baby in a safe manner
  • Failure to properly treat a medical condition after making a correct diagnosis
  • Failure to administer medications properly
