Common Medical Errors Our Lawyers See

Common Medical Errors Our Lawyers See

While no two cases of hospital or doctor negligence are identical, many medical malpractice claims arise from similar errors. Some of the most common acts of medical negligence the lawyers at Moseley Collins Law have encountered over four decades of litigation include:

  1. Failure to Diagnose/Misdiagnosis

    One of the top medical mistakes nationwide is misdiagnosis or failing to timely diagnose serious illnesses. Delayed or wrong diagnoses frequently occur with heart attacks, cancer, blood clots, strokes, infections, and more. The failure to order appropriate tests or accurately interpret results contributes to errors. Misdiagnosis denies patients prompt access to life-saving treatments.

  2. Childbirth Injuries

    High-risk deliveries increase opportunities for negligence causing harm to newborns and mothers. Most common delivery-related injuries our lawyers investigate include:

    • Failure to monitor fetal distress signals
    • Improper use of birth-assisting tools like forceps or vacuums
    • Errors administering anesthesia or other medications
    • Delayed emergency cesarean delivery

    Newborns may sustain permanent disabilities like cerebral palsy, seizures, or cognitive impairment due to oxygen deprivation or head/brain trauma during birth. Mothers also face higher risks needing hysterectomies, suffering emotional distress, or losing reproductive capability after negligent care.

  3. Surgical Errors

    Even routine and low-risk procedures can result in disastrous consequences when surgeons are negligent. Botched operations can leave patients permanently impaired or disfigured. Our firm sees many cases involving:

    • Operating on or amputating the wrong limb or organ
    • Leaving dangerous objects inside patients’ bodies after surgery
    • Anesthesia administration errors
    • Tearing arteries or organs
    • Failing to control bleeding
    • Severing nerves

    In many instances, surgical mistakes require extensive follow-up procedures, carry risks of deadly infections, and leave patients needing urgent corrective treatments.

    Our knowledgeable lawyers have decades helping victims recover damages when poor surgical care causes preventable harm.

  4. Pharmacy Errors

    Hospital and retail pharmacy mistakes carry risks of severe injury and overdose. Common errors include:

    • Dispensing the incorrect type or dose of medication
    • Failing to spot dangerous medication interactions
    • Mixing up patients’ prescriptions

    Pharmacy negligence can cause grave harm to patients, especially children and seniors. Our firm holds pharmacies liable for diligently checking dosages, properly labeling prescriptions, and identifying medication issues.

  5. Poor Care Coordination

    Medical negligence frequently involves breakdowns coordinating patient services between departments, facilities, or primary care doctors and specialists. Without seamless hand-offs of critical health data, patients risk falling through the cracks.

    Medical privacy laws can impede coordination too. Often family input gets overlooked despite having intimate knowledge of the patient’s history. This communication breakdown between providers, specialists, patients and caregivers too often has deadly consequences.
