Question:
How does medical malpractice occur?

Answer:
An unanticipated result or unsuccessful conclusion from medical treatment or surgery does not, in of itself, equate to medical malpractice. A doctor must have acted in a manner that was unacceptable as compared to other similarly trained doctors. Examples of how medical malpractice occurs are delay, misdiagnosis, or failure to properly diagnose a patientís medical condition; an error in selecting or performing a surgical procedure; failure to properly recognize and treat complications; and the failure to gain the informed consent from a patient for the treatment or surgery performed.
