Common Cases of Medical Negligence We Handle

Doctors, nurses and hospitals throughout Federal Way and the surrounding metro area have a duty to provide patients with an acceptable standard of care. When providers breach this duty through negligence, incompetence or abuse, they may be held liable for any resulting harm.

Some of the most common types of medical malpractice and negligence cases we handle for injured clients in Federal Way and nearby communities include:

Failure to Diagnose or Misdiagnosis

One of the top medical errors doctors make is misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose serious medical conditions. Missing or delaying the diagnosis of illnesses like cancer, heart disease, stroke, aneurysms, or infections can allow these diseases to progress to more advanced, sometimes incurable stages.

For instance, failure to detect an aggressive cancer like acute leukemia can rapidly become a fatal mistake.

Childbirth Injuries and Birth Trauma

When healthcare providers fail to meet the proper standard of care during pregnancy, labor or delivery, it can lead to devastating and permanent birth injuries, such as:

  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Forceps delivery errors
  • Failure to perform C-section when clearly warranted

If your baby suffered preventable harm due to mistakes during labor at a Federal Way hospital, our dedicated medical malpractice team can fully investigate events and help you pursue a case against any liable parties.

Surgical Errors

Even routine surgeries can result in severe harm when doctors or nurses are negligent. Surgical errors may include operating on the wrong body part, leaving foreign objects inside patients after surgery, lacerating organs or blood vessels, anesthesia mistakes, infections, and more. We handle all types of surgical error cases.

Medication and Pharmacy Errors

Mistakes with medications cause substantial preventable injuries, especially for seniors. We assist clients who have suffered harm from:

  • Being given the wrong medicines or incorrect dosages
  • Ignoring dangerous drug allergies and interactions
  • Illegible handwritten prescriptions
  • Dispensing mistakes made at the pharmacy
  • Improper monitoring of drug effects

Our lawyers can pursue cases against doctors, nurses, pharmacists or pharmaceutical companies responsible for medication-related harm.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Elderly, chronically ill and disabled residents of nursing homes often suffer harm from neglect, bedsores, dehydration, malnutrition, infections, medication errors, and physical or mental abuse. We can investigate cases of nursing home negligence or outright abuse and hold the facility fully liable.

No matter what type of medical negligence caused your devastating injury in the greater Federal Way area, the experienced medical malpractice lawyers at Moseley Collins Law can thoroughly examine events during an initial free consultation.
