The Best Press Release Distribution Service To Gain Exposure Within Budget

What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is in the news a lot, but what exactly is it? Joshua Zokaeem from the Capital Law Firm explains.

What is medical malpractice

“The short answer is medical malpractice is when a health care provider does something wrong,” he said. The long answer covers a huge amount of information, so I will go over some of the major points. If you have more questions or think you are the victim of medical malpractice, call my office for a free consultation.”


Standard of care

Medicine has standards of scare that should be adhered to. This means doctors, nurses and other health care professionals have polices, procedures and rules they have to follow. Violating these standards is malpractice.



“This is when a health care provider does not do something they are supposed to do. This sounds a lot like violating the standards of care, but it goes past that,” Mr. Zokaeem said. “Negligence means a problem or injury occurred because something was not done that should have been done. The injury or problem must be a direct result.”


Significant damages

Malpractice claims must also “significant damages.” Exactly what significant damages are is one of the matters that is often tested in malpractice case, Mr. Zokaeem said.


A short list of medical matters that meet these three standards are:


  • Failure to diagnose or improper diagnosis
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • The wrong surgery
  • Improper after care
  • Not doing proper testing
  • Failure to recognize symptoms


“The list is much broader than this, but space and time do not allow me to go into everything that can be malpractice. If you think your health care provider did something wrong, we need to talk,” the LA attorney said.
