A Deep Dive Into Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Medical malpractice is a type of professional negligence that can result in serious injury, illness, or death to patients. It can also take many forms. Common types of medical malpractice include surgical errors, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose, birth injury, prescription errors, emergency room treatment errors, and hospital negligence. Let’s dive into the specifics of each medical malpractice suit we represent.

  • Surgical errors are common malpractice injuries caused by mistakes made during a surgical procedure that could have been avoided through proper training, protocol, and execution. 
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis occurs when a diagnosis is correct but did not occur in a timely manner, as seen often in emergency medicine when face-to-face time is minimal and physicians are unaware of the patient’s history. 
  • Failure to diagnose is a form of medical malpractice in which a doctor fails to determine the nature of a medical problem. 
  • Birth injury refers to an injury or condition caused by medical negligence during childbirth or pregnancy,  often caused by preventable medical errors made by doctors or other healthcare professionals.
  • Prescription or medication errors occur when a patient is given the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of medication. When a preventable event causes or leads to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the drug is controlled by the healthcare professional, patient, or consumer. 
  • Emergency room treatment errors involve a breach of the patient’s standard of care. Malpractice in emergency room errors constitutes the same elements as standard malpractice. 
  • Hospital negligence is medical malpractice that occurs when a doctor, healthcare professional, hospital, or other healthcare facility fails to care for someone according to the medical profession’s accepted standards, and the person is injured, becomes ill, or has a condition or illness that worsens as a result. 

The above situations highlight the severity of medical malpractice, so it is imperative to seek representation if any of these events occur.
