Examples of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice refers to professional negligence by a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider that directly causes injury or harm to a patient. There are a variety of situations that may constitute medical malpractice.

Errors in Diagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis

One of the most common issues is when a healthcare practitioner misdiagnoses a patient’s condition, fails to diagnose it in time to effectively treat it, or fails to order proper testing that would have led to an accurate diagnosis sooner. For example, failing to detect an aggressive form of cancer early on could prevent the patient from getting life-saving treatment while the disease is still manageable.

Medication Mistakes

Prescribing the wrong medication, wrongly administering or dispensing medication, or failing to communicate proper instructions for a medication regimen can result in considerable patient harm. For instance, a lethal drug interaction due to a doctor failing to review records for contradictions or giving a pregnant patient a drug that causes birth defects.

Surgical Errors

Any sort of preventable error that occurs before, during, or after an operation falls under this category. It could be a surgeon or nurse damages organs or nerves during the procedure, leaving instruments inside the patient's body, or failing to prevent post-surgical infections. Even abnormal levels of anesthesia resulting in brain damage constitute medical malpractice.

Childbirth and Prenatal Injuries

Inadequate prenatal care, endangering mother or child during delivery, failure to carry out proper newborn screening, and similar issues that harm a baby before, during, or after labor may be grounds for a claim in this area. Common injuries due to malpractice include cerebral palsy, brain damage, or spinal cord injuries in newborns.

There is no limit on the forms that medical malpractice can take, but establishing a valid claim backed by evidence and expert testimony from medical professionals is key. An experienced lawyer can review the details and assess if moving forward with a case may lead to compensation for the damages suffered.

Should I get a lawyer for my medical malpractice claim?

An experienced medical malpractice lawyer levels the playing field and handles the intricate steps of building a negligence claim, preserving evidence, consulting medical experts across specialties, calculating adequate damages, and skillfully negotiating high-value settlements when possible.

What kind of compensation is possible?

Every case involves unique personal and financial losses from medical negligence. However, you may potentially recover damages such as:

  • Medical expenses from additional treatments needed
  • Rehabilitation and lifelong care costs
  • Lost wages and reduced earnings capacity
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Funeral and burial costs in wrongful death cases

How does investigating a claim work?

First, we conduct an extensive initial case review to establish the merits of a potential malpractice claim. If valid, we gather all relevant medical records, imaging, and evidence before consulting independent specialists across every specialty involved. Identifying how care failed to meet reasonable standards provides the foundation for future settlement talks or trial litigation. Investigation takes time but is essential.

What does a medical malpractice settlement usually include?

Typical settlements provide a package of compensation such as releasing the liable parties from legal claims, payment of damages covering losses suffered, structured payments over time rather than a single lump sum, and satisfaction of medical liens/bills owed. Experienced lawyers know how to negotiate strong settlement terms favoring the injured patient or grieving family harmed by substandard medical care.
