Types of Medical Malpractice

Just as there are countless types of illnesses and conditions, so are there countless possible types of medical malpractice cases. One common type of case is misdiagnosis. When a patient visits a doctor complaining of a certain set of symptoms, it is the doctor's responsibility to thoroughly investigate what may be causing the issue. If they fail to diagnose the patient's condition accurately, it means that they will also not receive the correct treatment. Another growing problem in the U.S. is prescription errors. Research in this area suggests that there are over 30 million errors involving prescription medication every year. With many pharmacies overwhelmed by the amount of patients coming to them to get their prescription filled, more and more cases are arising involving incorrect dosage or wrong medication.

When a child or mother is injured during labor and delivery, the results can be heartbreaking. When a new child is born, it is supposed to be a time of celebration. However, if the child was left with birth injuries like cerebral palsy, head trauma and brain damage, or a brachial plexus injury, the person responsible should be held accountable for the pain they caused to the family. Some birth injury and medical malpractice cases are so serious that the patient dies as a result of the errors. If you have lost a loved one because a doctor or hospital displayed negligence, filing a lawsuit could help cover funeral and burial expenses as well as compensate for lost wages. Even though it will not ease the pain of a wrongful death, it is still important to hold the guilty party responsible for what they have done.

Medical malpractice is not limited to professionals in hospitals but involves those in the fields of psychotherapy and psychiatry as well. From medication errors to abuse to failure to diagnose, patients can be left more troubled than they were at the beginning of the therapy. Another type of healthcare malpractice is dental malpractice. Whether you were harmed by an anesthesia error, a defective medical tool, or injury during oral surgery, you should contact our team to learn if we could help you receive compensation. In any type of medical malpractice case, you could be left having to deal with follow-up surgeries and treatments in order to get back to normal and you should not have to bear these financial burdens on your own.

Common Medical Malpractice Injuries

Whether you were involved in an accident or were the victim of medical malpractice, you could be facing a long recovery and even life-long disabilities. Among the most painful injuries are burn injuries. Depending on how many layers the burn penetrates through, the individual could be left with first, second, or third degree burns. In cases where the burn penetrates all the way to the bottom layer of skin, surgery will be necessary to remove the damaged tissue and replace it with a skin graft. However, even long after the wound has healed, the victim could still be facing permanent disfigurement. Those who are victims of a spinal cord injury or a neck and back injury could also be left with permanent disabilities. Paraplegia and quadriplegia are conditions where the victim no longer has any feeling in or control of their arms or all of their limbs.

Another heartbreaking type of injury is amputation. In some cases, it is the result of a doctor error, such as removing the wrong limb in surgery, or it is the result of a car accident or workplace accident. Whatever the reason, the victim's life may never be the same again and they may not be able to retain the same employment or even work at all. Even broken bones can be difficult as they can result in a long and painful recovery. If the bones were not set correctly or were not treated in the proper way, the victim could be left with chronic pain and difficulty moving.
