One form of medical malpractice you may not have thought of is in cases where someone is taking medication that is defective. Much like a product liability suit, so long as you correctly followed the directions for using the medication, you could sue the manufacturer. In cases like these, the problem is often that the medicine didn’t meet legal standards or that risks were not properly explained.
Of course, if a doctor prescribed the medication to you without first ensuring it wouldn’t cause problems with other medicine you take or issues unique to your physiology, you could potentially sue them for any complications or injuries that mistake caused.
