Examples of Common Medical Errors

As patient advocates, the legal team at Moseley Collins Law has seen hundreds upon hundreds of instances where substandard medical care or downright negligence caused preventable patient harm. Some of the more frequent medical errors we see include:

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis

Missing early symptoms of diseases through inaccurate interpretations of imaging scans, lab results, patient-reported complaints and more causes conditions like cancer, infections or cardiovascular disease to rapidly advance past the point of intervention.

Surgical Mistakes

Errors in the operating room that breach standards of reasonable care remain among the most catastrophic types of medical negligence we see. Severe disability and loss of limb function occur when rules get ignored, such as operating on the wrong body part, leaving foreign objects inside after surgery, employing improper technique that damages healthy tissues, or failing to prevent postoperative infections.

Medication Errors

Hospitalized patients rely on medical staff to correctly prescribe, dispense and administer all drugs. But mix ups still frequently happen involving wrong medications given, incorrect dosages, overlooked harmful drug interactions, inadequate monitoring of side effects, and other mishaps that compromise patient well-being.

Childbirth Injuries

When poor decisions or reckless actions take place during prenatal care through delivery, newborns may sustain brain bleeds, cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries and permanent damage. Any departure from accepted birthing standards must be addressed to help families secure lifelong care resources for affected infants.

Preventable Infections

With rigorous infection control practices inside hospitals, many illnesses caused by IV-line infections, surgical site contamination and superbugs like MRSA or C. diff could be prevented. But when systemic infection protocols get ignored, patient consequences turn dire.

And other types of medical errors - our legal team has extensive experience with the all-too-common oversights and negligent actions that bring preventable harm to patients.

Proving Medical Negligence Occurred

Proving Medical Negligence Occurred

Successfully winning fair compensation in a Crook County medical malpractice case hinges on having an experienced medical negligence lawyer demonstrate that substandard medical treatment caused preventable patient harm.

Key legal aspects our law firm must conclusively establish to prevail in medical negligence litigation include:

Duty of Care - A direct doctor-patient relationship existed that legally obligated the provider to deliver competent, safe treatment meeting professional standards.

Breach of Duty - The medical provider demonstrably failed in their duty to meet the appropriate standard of care. Their services fell below what a reasonable physician or nurse would have provided given symptoms and history.

Causation - The identified breaches in accepted medical practice standards definitively caused the subsequent patient injuries or damages. The harm connects directly to negligence.

Damages - The patient faces significant suffering and losses associated with resulting physical harm, mental anguish, lost income, disability, reduced life expectancy and lower quality of life that require financial compensation and justice.

Successfully proving medical negligence cases relies on plaintiff lawyers enlisting trusted independent specialists to meticulously review patient charts and form authoritative opinions showing exactly where healthcare standards failed, why no reasonable excuse existed for such failures, and how bad decisions led to patient catastrophe.
