Malpractice by hospitals and pharmaceutical companies

Medical malpractice is a vast legal term and can be applied to any individual or institution that is responsible for your healthcare. The most important part of medical malpractice cases is proving fault. In majority cases, doctors face consequences, but other entities like healthcare facilities and pharmaceutical companies might also be charged with malpractice. If you are going through medical treatment, you must realize that doctors are not the only people you can sue for medical malpractice.

If you feel the hospital neglected your medical needs, it can be held liable for any injuries caused. Although the medical staff is part of the hospital and can be sued individually, suing the hospital means that there was some sort of negligence involved. For example if an incompetent healthcare professional causes further harm to the patient, the hospital can be held responsible for hiring the incompetent professional.

Large pharmaceutical companies may also be the target of your malpractice lawsuit if their drug caused injuries or death. But it is essential to know that you may only sue the company if they did not warn the users about possible side effects. The pharmaceutical company is liable to the doctor, who is a learned intermediary between them and the patient. If the manufacturer fails to notify the consumer about the possible dangers of using a particular drug, they could be held liable for any injuries caused.

Medical facilities are made to aid patients and cure diseases. But sometimes they may cause further harm, in which case you have the right to file a complaint in court. You should consider hiring an experienced attorney to guide you through the complicated process.
