Examples of Recklessness and Preventable Errors

California’s stringent laws hold physicians and hospitals responsible for meeting accepted standards of care. Even one unreasonable medical mistake can devastate someone’s health or life plans for years to come. Our litigation team sees many types of health provider negligence lead to organ damage, misdiagnosis of cancer, delay in emergency treatment, birth injuries to babies, preventable infections, severe disability, addiction to prescription drugs, wrongful death of a loved one, and other harms. Families suffer physically, emotionally and financially.

Some specific examples of negligence and recklessness committed in hospitals include:

  • Errors during surgery (puncturing organs, biopsy mistakes, accidental amputations, surgical site infections due to poor hygiene)
  • Improper usage or dosing of anesthesia drugs
  • Failure to accurately interpret imaging scans and lab results
  • Misfiled prescription or inaccurate pharmacy instructions
  • Inadequate infection control policies
  • Severe bedsores in long-term care or nursing homes
  • Undiagnosed prenatal condition resulting in birth defect or stillbirths
  • Improper intubation or ventilator mismanagement

No patient expects to become the victim of medical mistakes or negligence. But if something seems amiss with your care or your condition is progressing more severely than anticipated, suspect malpractice may be involved. Do not write it off. An investigation by our medical experts can determine if standards of care were breached.
