What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when negligence on the part of a doctor or other
medical professional results in patient injury. Perhaps more than any
other area of law, handling medical malpractice cases on behalf of victims
in today’s environment requires skill and knowledge that only comes
from experience. Medical malpractice is different from other areas of
law, and it is essential that your attorney understands how to successfully
develop and try medical malpractice cases.
Cases can involve:
Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis, errors which can result in patients not receiving timely treatment or
even the wrong types of treatment.
Birth injury, including cerebral or Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus palsy, and other
forms of nerve and brain damage.
Surgical mistakes resulting from fatigue, lack of adequate training, and workplace stress
such as errors in administering anesthesia, use of improperly sterilized
equipment, operation on the wrong body part or patient, and even leaving
surgical tools inside a patient's body after a procedure.
Hospital negligence occurring when the ways that the hospital really does business, along
with its internal policies and procedures, fail to measure up to the level
of care advertised.
Nursing home abuse such as when residents are subjected to continued verbal, emotional, physical,
or sexual abuse. Residents may also be forced to live in unclean or unsanitary
conditions while being denied proper nourishment or medical attention.
Pharmacy errors occur when the wrong medication is given to a patient by a doctor or a
pharmacist. Patients are usually unaware they have been given the wrong
medication and only become aware once they experience adverse effects.
In instances involving medical malpractice, victims deserve to be compensated
for their injuries. Unfortunately, doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies
are reluctant to admit mistakes, and victims must rely on legal representation
to achieve justice.
