Understanding Medical Negligence

Understanding Medical Negligence

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional breaches their duty of care or standard procedures, resulting in preventable patient injury or harm. These serious errors may include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a condition
  • Surgical mistakes and errors during child delivery
  • Administering improper medication or wrong dose
  • Failure to order necessary tests or scans
  • Not monitoring patients appropriately after procedures

And tragically, medical negligence frequently causes lifelong disabilities, permanent health consequences, and even wrongful death of patients. Healthcare providers must be held responsible through medical malpractice claims when their reckless actions (or lack of action) leads to serious harm.

Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers have seen just about every type of case—from surgical errors to medication mixups to grossly negligent post-operative care. If your family is suffering due to mistakes by doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists or other medical staff, we can analyze the facts and build a case around identified acts of negligence.

Common Medical Errors Resulting in Permanent Damage

Medical negligence comes in many forms. Our firm has seen hundreds of errors and oversights leading to catastrophic injuries for victims in urgent need of life-altering care. Some of the most common medical mistakes include:

  • Misdiagnosing Conditions: Failing to correctly identify issues from heart attacks to cancers often allows these diseases to rapidly progress before proper treatment starts. Misinterpretation of test results also plays a major, preventable role.
  • Surgical Errors: Botched surgeries including leaving foreign objects inside patients after procedures account for a large portion of malpractice payouts according to studies. Anesthesia errors also severely harm patients.
  • Improper Prescriptions: Medication errors cause 1.3 million injuries per year according to research. Whether the wrong drug, wrong amount, or failure to spot adverse interactions, negligence in medication management can profoundly impact health.
  • Inadequate Patient Monitoring: Insufficient vital sign checks or analysis of concerning symptoms can have dire consequences for unstable patients. Failing to keep continuous watch on at-risk individuals or high-risk pregnant mothers endangers lives.
  • Poor Infection Control: Preventable hospital-acquired infections affect 1 in 25 hospital patients on any given day according to the CDC, resulting in upwards of 99,000 deaths per year. Failure to maintain sterile environments and procedure protocol spreads dangerous pathogens.
  • Birth-Related Incidents: Oxygen deprivation, excessive force, and other incidents during child delivery can lead to permanent conditions like cerebral palsy, severe jaundice, bone fractures, and brachial plexus injuries in infants.

The aftermath of medical errors can include severe disabilities, brain damage, paralysis, disfigurement, loss of limbs, and untold suffering for victims in what should be safe environments. When poor health decisions lead to life-altering harm for you or someone you love, malpractice lawyers can help patients get accountability and the maximum compensation they lawfully deserve.

The Basics of Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

The Basics of Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

Medical negligence lawsuits aim to help victims and families recover damages when substandard care causes catastrophic injuries and irreversible damage. But successfully resolving a malpractice claim involves in-depth investigation, precise demonstration of how the health organization breached duty of care, and complex legal processes.

With extensive experience handling malpractice cases specifically, our lawyers simplify matters for clients. We thoroughly examine relevant medical records, procedural standards, and where errors occurred to build a compelling argument regarding negligence. Key aspects of developing a strong medical negligence claim include:

  • Collecting Documentation: We gather pertinent medical records, test results, hospital policies/protocols, surgical notes, and any evidence needed to reveal mistakes by healthcare staff and providers.
  • Consulting Medical Experts: Subpoenas may be used to compel specific patient information. Then our team engages specialist physicians and nurses to analyze records and provide written testimony on evident breaches from proper protocol.
  • Establishing Causation: Legal arguments must draw direct correlation between the medical staff’s negligent actions and resulting injuries sustained by the patient. Our lawyers establish this vital causation link for claims.
  • Reconstructing Events: Pinpointing when errors occurred and how they resulted in harm is key. We build detailed timelines about what specifically went wrong in a patient's care sequence based on records.
  • Meeting Burden of Proof: Winning malpractice cases relies on demonstrating a preponderance of evidence against the liable healthcare provider. We handle obtaining all the proof necessary to show your injury claim warrants compensation.

Our firm also consults with financial experts to calculate and validate appropriate damages owed to help cover extensive costs patients now face for lifelong treatment, accommodations, loss of income, and more hardships. We establish how much negligence has financially devastated clients’ lives—building mighty cases designed to yield maximum payout sums for their suffering.
