What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is any medical treatment that deviates from the accepted standards of care for a reasonably careful medical provider under the same or similar circumstances or any omission of treatment, which causes injury to the patient.  The most common medical malpractice claims are misdiagnosis, childbirth injuries, medication errors, and surgical errors.

A successful Mississippi medical malpractice claim must show:

  1. The health care provider failed to exercise that degree of care, skill, and learning expected of a reasonable, prudent health care provider in the profession or class to which he or she belongs within the state acting in the same or similar circumstances; and
  2. Such failure was the proximate cause of the injury.

Who Can Commit Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice may occur at any time during the treatment process, in any medical setting, and by any medical provider or health care organization.

These include, but are not limited to:

  • A registered nurse;
  • A dentist;
  • A podiatrist;
  • A chiropractor;
  • An optometrist;
  • A pharmacist;
  • A surgical center;
  • An assisted living center;
  • A nursing home;
  • An emergency medical care provider;
