Types of Medical Malpractice Claims We Handle
We handle all types of medical malpractice claims, but most commonly, they involve the following:
- Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: When a healthcare provider fails to correctly identify or timely diagnose a medical condition, leading to delayed or improper treatment.
- Surgical Errors: This includes mistakes made during surgery, such as operating on the wrong body part, leaving surgical instruments inside the patient, or performing unnecessary procedures.
- Medication Errors: Mistakes in prescribing, dispensing, or administering medication, which can lead to adverse effects, overdoses, or harmful drug interactions.
- Birth Injuries: Occur during labor and delivery, potentially causing harm to the infant or mother due to medical negligence, inadequate monitoring, or improper techniques.
- Anesthesia Errors: These can range from administering too much or too little anesthesia to failing to monitor a patient’s vital signs during surgery.
- Failure to Obtain Informed Consent: When a healthcare provider fails to adequately inform a patient about the risks, benefits, and alternatives of a treatment or procedure, and the patient suffers harm as a result.
- Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse: Involves situations where residents of nursing homes or long-term care facilities suffer harm due to inadequate care, neglect, or intentional mistreatment.
- Hospital Negligence: This encompasses a wide range of issues within a hospital setting, including inadequate staffing, poor sanitation, and failure to follow proper protocols.
Several types of compensation may be available in a medical malpractice claim, such as medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and any other financial burdens incurred due to the malpractice. In addition, compensation can be awarded for intangible losses like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. In cases of extreme negligence or intentional misconduct, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party and deter similar behavior in the future.
