Medical malpractice legislation and provisions are meant not only to compensate victims of medical malpractice, but to also ensure that doctors have all the impetus needed to be extra cautious and diligent at their work and not be too confident that they become negligent.
Doctors are human too and like the rest of us, they are prone to making mistakes. However, the difference is that a doctor’s mistakes can prove to be costly for the patient who may even have to pay with his or her life.
Furthermore, doctors are obligated to provide care to the best of their ability courtesy of the Hippocratic Oath that they take when they first step into the profession.
There are many short comings or inactions on part of a healthcare professional which according to Kansas state laws will be considered medical malpractice. Some common examples of medical malpractice include:
- administration of incorrect medication
- incorrect medication prescribed
- improper dose of medication prescribed
- incorrect dose administered,
- wrong diagnosis
- failure to diagnose
- not educating the patient prior to a treatment or surgery about the implications in terms of short term and long term side effects post the treatment or surgery,
- incorrectly deciphering x-rays, scan reports, blood reports, tissue reports
- performing a medical operation or service without the due permission of the patient, etc
- Birth Injuries
- Nursing Home Abuse

What are the damages you can win in a medical malpractice lawsuit?
- Economic damages – Economic damages are meant as compensation for the financial losses that a victim of medical malpractice or his or her family may have had to bear such as medical bills, loss of wages, or funeral costs (in case of death), etc. These damages will of course have to be supported with relevant bills and documentation.
- Non-economic damages – These damages are meant as compensation for losses which cannot be quantified in terms of money. For example, things like loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, etc. are considered non-economic damages.
