Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

Doctors and other medical professionals are very highly regarded in our society and we literally have to trust them with our lives in the event of a health emergency. With years of school and training, doctors and nurses are required to have all of the skills necessary to keep us healthy and determine what the proper course of action is when we are not. Unfortunately, sometimes doctors and nurses make mistakes and the patient can quickly become a victim of medical malpractice. Becoming the victim of medical malpractice can be devastating to one’s health and may even be fatal.

There are a number of different types of medical malpractice cases that a person may bring. Some of these include:
-Failure to diagnose: an incorrect or nonexistent diagnosis can be very serious and sometimes, fatal. This is commonly seen in cancer, appendicitis, stroke, and heart attacks.
-Surgical errors: some of the most common surgical errors include operating on the wrong part of the body and leaving a medical instrument inside the patient
-Medication errors: medical professionals may give a patient the incorrect dosage of their prescribed medication or accidentally switch their medication with another patient
-Anesthesia errors: if a medical professional gives an individual too little anesthesia, they may wake up during surgery. If they give the patient too much anesthesia, they may suffer an overdose.
-Birth Injuries: birth injuries can be very serious and may occur if a doctor does not act upon the first signs of fetal distress

If you have been a victim of medical malpractice, it is important to contact an experienced attorney today who can provide you with assistance.
