What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a practitioner or facility willingly or negligently causes an injury or death to a patient. Usually, the injury or death was preventable, either by choice or by omission. For example, if a facility fails to put up handrails to prevent patients from falling, that is negligence. If a doctor forgets to check test results in time to prevent a catastrophic blood clot from harming a patient, that is also negligence. Omission after-the-fact, such as deleting notes and test results to cover tracks is also malpractice.

Medical negligence must meet three minimum criteria for a case to move forward. In Michigan, the liability of a medical malpractice claim is determined by a review panel made up of doctors and lawyers. The three criteria of medical malpractice are:

  • The injury was caused by a violation of the state’s patient standards of care
  • The injury is a direct result of the provider’s negligent actions
  • The injury resulted in economic and/or noneconomic damages that can be pursued in court

Most malpractice claims must be filed within two years of the initial injury.
