What is Medical Malpractice?
You may need an Oklahoma medical malpractice lawyer if a doctor or another medical professional – like a nurse or technician – harms you, the patient. This can be the result of a person doing something, or failing to do something that causes a permanent injury or harm to you.
How Do I Know if I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?
There’s a lot more to a medical malpractice case than a patient getting hurt. The key factors involve showing or proving:
- A doctor or another medical professional made a mistake, and
- You were permanently harmed by that mistake
Any malpractice case is a long and complicated legal matter, because it’s not always fast or easy to prove those two things. You will need documentation to prove that a mistake was made that harmed you. There are also statutes of limitations on medical malpractice cases in Oklahoma. If too much time has passed between when the mistake happened and when you decide to pursue legal action, it may be too late.

While no healthcare professional means to cause harm, medical mistakes do happen. Such errors range from
- prescription medication errors
- surgery error | surgical malpractice
- birth injury cases
- elder abuse | nursing home abuse
There are a number of ways that medical errors occur. Doctors sometime misdiagnose an illness or make a serious error during surgery. Another type of mistake, medication errors, are quite common. Perhaps you were prescribed the wrong medicine. Maybe you ended up taking a mix of prescriptions that are dangerous together. If your quality of life is affected as a result, you may have a medical malpractice case.
