Common Hospital Errors Resulting in Medical Negligence

Far too often, preventable errors happen in hospitals that seriously impact patients. Some of these medical mistakes include:

  • Misdiagnosis - Failure to correctly diagnose a condition, leading to delayed or improper medical care. Particularly common with heart attacks, cancer and strokes.
  • Surgical Errors - Mistakes made during surgical procedures, whether in preparation, the surgery itself, or post-operation follow-up. Can involve anesthesia errors, damage to organs/nerves, retained foreign objects and infections.
  • Medication Errors - Administering the wrong type or dose of medication. Includes pharmacy mix ups. Allergic reactions, organ damage and even death can occur from these errors.
  • Infection Outbreaks - Failure to maintain sanitary conditions results in dangerous bacterial infections like MRSA and sepsis spreading between patients.
  • Birth Injuries - Errors during labor/delivery can inflict devastating harm on babies. This includes lack of oxygen to the brain, improper use of forceps leading to physical trauma, cerebral palsy and other conditions.

Tragically, many medical mistakes cause severe injuries with life-long effects. These include:

How Do I Know If I Have a Valid Malpractice Case?

It can be difficult to determine if medical errors rise to the stringent level of malpractice liability. That is why our first step working with potential clients is thoroughly investigating what went wrong. We obtain all pertinent records, consult medical specialists, examine events leading up to the injury and leave no stone unturned.

Some clues that might indicate malpractice include:

  • You have lingering medical problems despite treatment
  • A diagnosis was delayed, missed or wrong
  • A physician did not order tests or referrals that standard protocol requires
  • Surgical complications occurred and were not promptly addressed
  • A hospital-acquired infection developed
  • A medication caused an unexpected reaction
  • There are unexplained gaps in your medical records

But every situation has unique factors. It takes comprehensive analysis by our medical malpractice lawyers to decide if yours meets the legal criteria. If not, we still provide recommendations so you can make informed choices going forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked QuestionsHow Long Do I Have to File a Malpractice Lawsuit in California?

Per California law, you normally have one year from the date of discovery to file a medical malpractice claim. There are limited exceptions allowing up to three years. To avoid exceeding your statute of limitations, contact our lawyers promptly about starting an investigation.

Will Pursuing Legal Action Affect My Healthcare?

No. Doctors cannot deny you treatment because you are seeking accountability for past negligence. But for your safety, you may want to switch facilities or providers.

What If a Loved One Died from Medical Negligence?

If negligent medical care resulted in someone’s death, surviving family members can potentially file a wrongful death lawsuit against liable healthcare providers. This seeks compensation for funeral costs, lost income and companionship.

Could More Than One Party Be Responsible for My Harms?

Yes. Most malpractice cases involve a primary negligent doctor. But nurses, technicians, pharmacists and sometimes the hospital itself may share blame. Our lawyers pursue damages from all appropriate sources.

Who Pays My Medical Bills While My Case Proceeds?

We advise clients upfront on options for ongoing care coverage through personal injury protection plans, government programs and other means. Bills may ultimately get covered by a case settlement, but can’t go unpaid in the interim.

What If the Negligent Doctor Was a Specialist?

Regardless of a physician’s specialty, proving malpractice requires showing they failed to meet accepted standards of medical care. We consult independent experts in relevant fields to assess if a specialist like a surgeon or OBGYN acted negligently.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

Every malpractice claim has unique worth based on factors like: injuries/losses, available insurance coverage, precedent jury awards in your area and shared liability. It takes a comprehensive review to estimate potential damages. During your free consultation, we provide case valuation guidance.

What If I Just Have Questions About My Experience?

Even if you are not ready to pursue legal action, we encourage you to request a free case assessment. We can answer questions, offer our medical knowledge where standards of care possibly weren’t met, and provide advice so you can make empowered choices regarding your family’s health going forward.
