Examples of Hospital Medical Errors

Hospital patients rely on medical personnel to provide competent care meeting professional standards. When that trust is violated, patients may suffer preventable injuries at the hands of negligent hospital staff. We have seen many catastrophic cases caused by errors such as:

Emergency Room Mistakes

Failure to promptly diagnose and treat emergency conditions can rapidly escalate into grave illness or permanent injury. ER errors that may warrant damages include:

  • Stroke and heart attack misdiagnosis
  • Delayed trauma treatment
  • Failure to recognize signs of sepsis
  • Discharging patients too soon
Surgical Errors

Surgical mistakes prior to or during surgery can have severe consequences:

  • Operating on wrong body part
  • Leaving foreign objects inside patients
  • Organ perforation
  • Cutting or damaging healthy tissue
Childbirth Complications

When OBGYN doctors, nurses or midwives act negligently it can put mothers and newborns at risk:

  • Failure to monitor fetal distress
  • Improper use of medications or forceps
  • Delayed emergency C-section
Medication Errors

Getting the wrong drugs or dosages leads thousands of hospital patients to suffer additional harm yearly:

  • Administering medication to the incorrect patient
  • Giving two incompatible medications
  • Over or under-dosing medication
  • Pharmacy prescription errors

No patient should suffer permanent injury or wrongful death because of preventable medical negligence while hospitalized. Our firm can help victims and grieving families pursue compensation if substandard hospital care caused catastrophic damage.

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

When hospitals, doctors or other medical professionals violate accepted standards of care and injure patients, our law firm conducts in-depth investigations to build strong medical malpractice cases. A meticulous review of records and expert opinions lays the groundwork for securing compensation for catastrophic patient harms.

Gathering Hospital and Medical Records

The trail of medical paperwork allows our lawyers to recreate a timeline and highlight missed protocols. We gather:

  • Medical charts from doctor, specialist and hospital visits
  • Actual test results, scans, pathology reports and bloodwork
  • Doctor observation and progress notes, nursing shift notes
  • Surgical records including consent forms and anesthesia reports
  • Billing records detailing all treatments, medications and imaging ordered
  • Discharge summary explaining follow-up care recommendations

Records also establish a patient’s baseline health before negligence as well as the extent of resultant injuries.

Consulting Medical Specialists to Demonstrate Negligence

While lawyers understand legal standards, we enlist medical specialists matching areas where errors allegedly occurred. For example, a surgical mistake investigation would involve surgeons, while medication overdoses engage pharmacology experts.

These specialists examine records to provide unbiased opinions on whether acceptable standards of care were breached. Their testimony strengthens arguments as to how and why patient injuries resulted directly from subpar medical treatment.

Assessing Damages from Physical Harm and Emotional Trauma

Beyond proving negligence, investigators tally all patient harms for inclusion in settlement negotiations or courtroom demands. We seek compensation for:

  • Medical costs from hospitalization, surgeries, rehabilitation
  • Lost income and reduced future earnings capacity
  • Disability modifications and ongoing custodial expenses
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering

Documenting both economic and non-economic damages maximizes case value.

Thorough investigations demonstrating medical negligence and tallying the full extent of patient suffering builds robust cases. Our fact-finding process has helped secure millions in compensation for clients over four decades.
