Health Law and Malpractice Lawsuits

Health; can be defined as having the ability to be in harmony with the environment in a physical, mental, sociological and mental sense, and not being under the influence of any dysfunction or disability. Health Law, on the other hand, is a unique branch of law that regulates the legal relations between those who receive, provide and benefit from health services, and the control and inspection mechanisms assigned for these services. Incorrect medical practices (Malpractice) are also among the subjects within the scope of health law.

The most common cases in practice in this field are malpractice cases. “Malpractice (Fault of Physician )” its medical name is according to the Professional Ethics Rules defined as; the harm of a patient due to the physician’s ignorance, inexperience or indifference. The World Physicians Association, on the other hand, keeps this definition much broader as the physician’s sloppy behavior negligence, failure to interfere with malpractice, or unnecessarily altering the standard procedure. Malpractice creates legal and in some cases criminal liability of the physician who applies the wrong treatment and the institution to which he is affiliated. Patients who have been harmed due to the physician’s fault or the health institution’s fault have the right to demand material and moral compensation from the physician or the institution. Since medical personnel, physicians and doctors performing their duties may face criminal investigation, sanction and compensation claims at any time with the allegation of wrong and erroneous treatment, and also, since the criminal liability of physicians constitutes an extremely complex special area of law, we recommend you to seek assistance from lawyers who are experts in Health Law and Malpractice cases and criminal cases since it will be important for the exercise of the right to initiate and conclude the process by the expert.
