Medical malpractice, very often, is mistaken by a patient for a bad result. Not every case that ended badly was necessarily a medical malpractice. Having said that, it does not mean that doctors do not make mistakes. Even when the doctor has done everything right the patient may still end up with a bad result. In order for the case to be a medical malpractice case the doctors action has to be a deviation of standard medical care or a mistake that no prudent physician would make. An obvious example is a case in which the doctor is suppose to operate on the right leg to amputate it, but instead the doctor amputates the left leg. Strangely Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyers have seen these types of errors occur.
Other often mistakes that occur in a medical malpractice is the failure to diagnose a curable condition in the beginning, but left untreated will cause dire consequences. For example a woman had a small tumor, but the doctor failed to see that in the mammogram and it had become an advanced staged tumor, and it is now too late for only surgical treatment.
