Defining Medical Malpractice: 3 Frequent Cases

Defining Medical Malpractice

Defining medical malpractice can be tricky, and victims could be unaware that they are victims. Here are 3 frequent types of cases that we see.

Patients that experience inadequate medical care at the hands of a medical professional are entitled to compensation. Medical malpractice takes many forms and varies in severity, from delayed diagnosis to major organ damage. Any missteps by the doctor, nurse, or hospital could inflict life-long damage on the patient. Often, these mistakes require additional procedures that could place a financial burden on the patient.

However, when medical malpractice occurs it is often difficult for victims to spot. Lacking proper knowledge and representation, many patients don’t seek compensation or challenge those at fault. If you or a loved one fall victim to medical errors, contact an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to ensure that you receive reparations for all damage.

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis

If the patient is harmed due to misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, it is a case of medical malpractice. These mistakes could put patients through expensive and unnecessary treatments, harming their health and financial stability. Similarly, patients with urgent illness won’t receive vital care and medical attention. This ignorance could allow their illness to worsen in severity.

Surgical Errors

An invasive and risky procedure, successful surgery relies on the medical professional’s attentive performance and adequate postoperative care. Surgical patients are very vulnerable and place their full trust in surgeons to conduct the procedure correctly.

Due to the delicate nature of the procedure, surgical errors have life-changing effects on the patient’s health. Anesthesia use must be exact; too little could cause the patient to wake up during the operation and too much could lead to death. These errors are prime examples of medical malpractice. Some other common examples include damaging vital organs, conducting an incorrect procedure, or even discarding equipment inside the body. Contact a lawyer to receive compensation for your trauma if any of these examples happen to you!

Birth Injuries

Childbirth is a celebrated milestone that welcomes new life into this world. Expected parents prepare for the newborn’s arrival with frequent doctor’s visits, healthy diets, and attentive personal health. However, birth injuries cast a dark shadow upon a joyous day. Medical damages could impact both the mother and the newborn, leading to severe mental and physical trauma. Consequences are severe, leaving lifelong impacts. In some cases, birth injuries could result in the death of the mother or child.
