Common Injuries Stemming from Hospital & Doctor Negligence

When hospitals, doctors, or other healthcare professionals breach standards of care through negligence or incompetence, patients often sustain devastating, life-altering injuries. Some of the most common severe medical injuries caused by medical malpractice our Grover Beach medical malpractice lawyers see include:

Birth & Delivery Injuries

Childbirth complications often lead to dire injuries for both mothers and babies when doctors or nurses fail to respond appropriately. These can include:

  • Lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain during distress leading to cerebral palsy or other developmental disabilities
  • Improper use of vacuum or forceps resulting in physical damage
  • Failure to perform emergency C-section when warranted
  • Severe vaginal tearing from improper episiotomies/incisions

At Moseley Collins Law we have recovered millions for families grappling with lifelong injuries due to poor handling of deliveries and obstetric emergencies by hospitals.

Surgical Errors

Surgical Errors

Botched surgeries cause serious harm to patients annually. Our lawyers have seen Grover Beach patients facing drastic impacts due to surgical mistakes such as:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Leaving foreign objects inside the patient’s body
  • Severing organs/blood vessels
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Health complications or death from delays/negligence in emergency surgeries

We build strong negligence cases against surgeons and hospitals responsible for medical errors and oversights causing patients major post-operative complications.

Misdiagnosis & Delayed Diagnosis

One of the most common yet gravest types of medical malpractice—failure to promptly and accurately diagnose a serious underlying condition—leads to measurably worse outcomes, permanent impairment, or death for patients that proper diagnosing could have prevented. Missing diagnoses of major health issues like cancers, meningitis infections, aneurysms, heart attacks, prenatal complications and more diminishes or severely reduces patients’ chance of survival and recovery.

But Moseley Collins Law’s seasoned medical malpractice lawyers can still build viable negligence cases even when an underlying condition proves fatal. We secure evidence showing that with timely, proper diagnosing and treatment, the patient's prognosis could have drastically improved and death or disability avoided.

Medication & Pharmacy Errors

Hospitals often cause patients additional harm through:

  • Administering wrong medications or incorrect dosages
  • Overprescribing habit-forming opioids after procedures
  • Releasing patients with incorrect prescriptions
  • Failing to spot hazardous drug interactions

Likewise, pharmacies frequently compound harm by negligently dispensing the wrong drugs or dosages to patients leading to medical emergencies, overdoses, and at times fatalities.

Our skilled medical malpractice lawyers thoroughly investigate medication and prescription errors, sharply highlighting how patients suffered injuries due to unacceptable mistakes by medical professionals and pharmacies warranting substantial compensation.

Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

Elderly rehabilitation and long-term care patients often experience negligence in Grover Beach nursing homes, rehabs, or assisted living centers including:

  • Bedsores & infection from lack of turning/cleaning
  • Malnourishment from insufficient feeding
  • Excessive medication errors
  • Preventable falls/fractures from lack of supervision
  • Dehydration from inadequate attention
  • Disabilities from delays in responding to medical emergencies

Sadly, some vulnerable seniors also endure outright physical or mental abuse from abusive nursing home staff.

And More Severe Injuries

Beyond the common incidents above, hospital negligence lawyers at Moseley Collins Law have seen many other examples of Grover Beach healthcare providers severely breaching standards of care, including:

  • Alarming misuse of sedatives or anesthesia during simple procedures leading to respiratory arrest, brain damage, or death
  • Needless permanent disability stemming from healthcare-associated infections due to unhygienic facilities/staff
  • Gross delays or negligence in responding to emergent conditions like sepsis, preeclampsia, or diabetic complications
  • Major bodily damage from radiation therapy done improperly
  • Outright assault or abuse by doctors, nurses or technicians

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Can I recover damages if an underlying condition impacted my injuries or chance of survival?

You may still recover damages. Even if you had a preexisting condition that made negative outcomes more likely, if medical negligence ultimately caused disability or death, the negligent party is still liable for damages related to injuries suffered or hastened demise. The law is clear that all patients deserve appropriate standards of care regardless of underlying health status.

Does medical malpractice litigation require going before a jury in court?

Though we rigorously prepare each case for trial, approximately 90% of medical negligence cases settle favorably out of court. Settlements avoid uncertainties of jury trials while still securing victims' fair compensation sooner. But credibly showing we have the expertise and evidence to prevail at jury trial if necessary leads to better settlements.

Do you need a lawyer to sue a hospital for negligence?

Absolutely - medical negligence law is extremely complex. Navigating regulatory nuances around standards of acceptable care as well as working with medical experts to demonstrate deviations requires specialized legal expertise. Likewise negotiating reasonable settlements necessitates skill and experience. Medical malpractice lawyers increase claim value dramatically - most victims who try to file negligence lawsuits without a lawyer end up forfeiting valid claims or compensation.

What mistakes justify a medical malpractice claim?

Some common incidents that warrant malpractice claims when resulting in injury or death include:

  • Misdiagnosed or delayed diagnosis of the condition
  • Surgical errors harming patient
  • Childbirth complications from negligence
  • Improper prescriptions causing harm
  • Disability stemming from delays in providing emergency care
  • Nursing home neglect/abuse leading to injury or demise

Bottom line - if a healthcare provider violated standards of care expected within the profession, causing measurable patient harm, you likely have grounds to pursue a malpractice claim. Contact our Grover Beach medical malpractice lawyers today at (800) 426-5546 for a FREE case evaluation.
