Institute of Medicine: misdiagnosis still common in health care

Imagine going to an urgent care facility or an emergency room with symptoms that you think are from a heart attack, but you're told that you have indigestion only to discover later on that indeed, you were having a heart attack. Or that your doctor tells you that your anemia symptoms are the result of an ulcer, but you discover that in fact the culprit is kidney cancer.

How is medical malpractice different from ordinary negligence?

Medical malpractice is a variation of the general tort of negligence. The concept behind a negligence cause of action is that the person responsible for the plaintiff’s injury owed a duty of reasonable care, and in the breach of such duty directly caused harm that was foreseeable under the circumstances.

What is demonstrative evidence?

When it comes to medical malpractice cases in Connecticut, the plaintiff — you and your attorney — must be able to prove fault by presenting evidence. In general, there are two types of evidence. The first is a trial testimony. This is evidence presented by professionals in the fiend and other experts who can shed light on the matter. They may be asked if they doctor did anything wrong, if they themselves would have done something differently, etc.
