A hospital, doctor, or other health care professional is expected to provide a certain standard of care. According to Thai law, the majority of medical malpractice cases would be considered a “wrongful act” as defined by the Thailand Civil and Commercial Code section 420.
The professional is not liable for all the harms a patient experiences. However, they are legally responsible if the patient experiences harm or injury because the health provider deviated from the quality of care that is normally expected in similar situations.
Factors to be considered if it is a medical malpractice:
- Failure to provide a proper standard of care
- Injury results from negligence
- Injury must have damaging consequences
