About Medical Malpractice
Winning a medical malpractice case requires proving that a doctor, surgeon, nurse or other medical caregiver made a negligent or careless error that led to your personal injury. The main categories of medical malpractice are as follows:
- Surgical errors – Negligent mistakes by a surgeon, such as lack of pre- or post-operative planning or errors made in the operating room, can cause a patient undue pain, injury, distress or even wrongful death.
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose – Physicians are responsible for performing thorough examinations and taking detailed medical histories. Doctors who fail to identify telltale signs of serious conditions because they either do not examine fully or do not take a complete medical history could be accused of negligence, if those actions lead to a misdiagnosis.
- Medication errors – Doctors who make errors in prescribing, dosing or combining medications that produce dangerous drug interactions could be found negligent. Additionally, a pharmacist who incorrectly fills or distributes a prescription due to negligence could be liable.
- Failure to monitor – If a physician fails to monitor the condition or recovery of a patient, he or she could easily miss warning signs of complications, especially those that worsen rapidly, and the patient could become very ill or even die.
