Common Medical Negligence Claims We Handle

Hospital negligence can take many forms. Some common incidents leading to medical malpractice claims we accept in the Mendota area include:

  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis - Failure to promptly test for and accurately diagnose health conditions allows progression of diseases and leads to otherwise avoidable patient harm.
  • Childbirth Injuries - Preventable mistakes during prenatal care or delivery can lead to birth defects, cerebral palsy, and other complications for the baby. Mothers also experience avoidable injuries during childbirth.
  • Surgical Errors - From operating on the wrong site, accidentally leaving tools inside patients, to nicking organs and blood vessels - surgical mistakes can be devastating.
  • Medication Errors - Getting the wrong medications or dosages leads to dangerous drug interactions, overdoses, allergic reactions and other negative outcomes.

Recovering after an incident requires significant medical care, lifestyle changes and more. Monetary damages in successful claims account for both economic costs and non-economic suffering.
