What Is Medical Malpractice Liability?
Medical malpractice liability refers to which person or parties should be held legally responsible for the patient's injuries. This is usually the party that breached their duty of care, and was the actual cause of the patient's injuries. But in some cases, it can be difficult to tell exactly who the liable parties are.
For instance, medical malpractice liability can often involve more than one party. It is possible for medical malpractice liability may be split betweenboth a doctor and nurse whose negligence caused the injury. For instance, if wrong instructions were given, or if one professional failed to correct the other, there may be a chance that both parties can be held liable.
A hospital organization can also sometimes be held liable for malpractice, especially in cases where the overall policy or quality of care of the hospital is substandard.
