Medical Errors and Hospital Negligence Causing Injuries

Examples of Common Medical Mistakes Resulting in Patient Harm

While medical facilities work hard to deliver quality care, mistakes still happen far too frequently due to avoidable errors. Some common examples of medical negligence in Manteca-area healthcare facilities include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis - Failing to correctly identify patient conditions promptly often leads to inappropriate medical treatments, lost opportunity for effective early interventions, and significantly worsened prognoses. Cancer, heart attacks, strokes, infections, and other serious illnesses often get overlooked.
  • Surgical mistakes - Although adverse events can happen even with proper protocols, too often preventable surgical errors occur such as operating on wrong body parts, leaving foreign objects inside patients after procedures, nicking blood vessels or organs, anesthesia mistakes, using faulty equipment causing injuries, etc.
  • Childbirth injuries - Labor and delivery difficulties resulting in oxygen deprivation, brain damage, cerebral palsy, nerve damage, and other issues for infants that should have been avoided with proper OB/GYN care.
  • Nursing errors - Inadequate patient observation and negligent nursing care often involve medication mistakes, improper administration of treatments, failure to communicate ongoing concerns, development of preventable bed sores, and other problems that harm healing.

Identifying and proving exactly how healthcare providers breached duties of care takes precise legal preparation and presentation. Our law firm handles these complex processes from start to finish when representing medical negligence victims. We secure medical experts providing testimony needed to validate and describe mistakes made and how patients got injured as a direct result.

Steps We Take Building Strong Medical Negligence Claims

Successfully recovering compensation for clients injured by medical errors involves meticulous development of nursing/doctor negligence claims against healthcare providers. Key steps our law firm takes when fighting for injury victims include:

Comprehensive Case Investigations

We thoroughly gather all pertinent medical records, test results, images/scans, surgical logs, medication administration logs, OB/GYN delivery & fetal monitoring data, and other facility documentation relevant to patient care. Tracking down these materials can be extremely difficult, but our lawyers persistently acquire everything needed.

We extensively review all collected health records searching for improper protocols, testing delays, medication issues, nursing notes showing changing patient conditions without follow-ups, observable symptoms dismissed, and other red flags suggesting medical standards were breached.

Consulting Medical Specialists to Establish Errors

Interpreting technical medical documentation takes physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, pharmacology specialists, and other experts to highlight what exactly went wrong. We consult independent specialists from related medical fields to ask direct questions about patient care, protocols, apparent safety violations, excessive actions, or negligent omissions.

These specialists provide incredible insight into determining how healthcare providers failed to meet reasonable standards of care. Their findings greatly strengthen arguments demanding accountability for injuries caused by medical negligence.

Calculating Short and Long-term Costs of Ongoing Patient Care

We collect information from physicians managing ongoing care to fully understand current and future medical requirements with estimates for costs of:

  • Hospitalizations & surgeries - Both immediate and probable long-term
  • Rehabilitation & therapeutic care
  • Home healthcare assistance
  • Prescription medications
  • Special medical equipment and supplies
  • Transportation for medical visits
  • And more

Documenting these expenses provides courts and insurance negotiators tangible data for projecting lifetime costs resulting from injuries - reinforcing reasonable compensation levels we fight for.
