Examples of Medical Malpractice in Hospitals

While most patients receive quality care at the healthcare facilities, mistakes happen which change lives forever. From surgical errors to medication mixups and everything between, medical negligence can cause catastrophic harm. Some common injuries due to hospital malpractice include:

  • Infant brain damage, such as cerebral palsy
  • Surgical mistakes causing severe infections
  • Failure to diagnose serious conditions like cancer
  • Anesthesia errors leading to brain injury
  • Medication overdoses creating organ failure
  • Severed arteries during surgery resulting in limb paralysis or amputation

No amount of money can reverse the damage done by medical malpractice. But it can help victims pay for lifelong medical care and household modifications allowing for accessibility. We help clients recover costs for both economic and non-economic damages.

Hospital Negligence Causing Specific Injuries

Hospital Negligence Causing Specific Injuries

Medical mistakes leading to any type of harm deserve justice. But certain injuries resulting from medical negligence often require extensive, lifelong treatment. These cases demand legal advocates who know how to prove damages to secure sufficient compensation. Moseley Collins Law helps victims suffering from paralysis, amputations, severe infections and more hold both doctors and hospitals accountable.

Birth & Pediatric Injuries

From failure to perform cesarean sections to medication errors in pediatric units, hospital mistakes often devastate both baby and family. Trying to manage injuries like cerebral palsy or brachial plexus (nerve damage) can overwhelm parents. We help them confront negligent physicians and medical facilities to recover costs for surgeries, therapy, equipment, home modifications and related needs.

Surgical Errors

One minor slip-up during surgery can leave patients fighting for their life. Our lawyers have seen surgical mistakes leading to severe infections, organ damage, paralysis and even limb amputation. We build strong arguments proving surgical negligence through expert testimony and procedure analysis. Victims may recover compensation for both trauma and permanent disability.

Emergency Room Mistakes

When every minute counts, ER errors can be fatal. Failure to run key tests, not recognizing warning signs of strokes/heart attacks or delayed diagnosis often leads to brain damage, organ failure and wrongful death. We help grieving families file claims after losing someone due to emergency room malpractice.

Cancer Misdiagnosis

Delayed cancer detection drastically reduces survivability rates. Unfortunately, missed lab results, inaccurate pathology and other factors result in diagnosing cancer too late. We help victims sue for compensation if negligent misdiagnosis in an emergency room, hospital or other medical facility gave cancer more time to progress unchecked.

Anesthesia Errors

Anesthesia allows invasive surgery but also introduces serious risks. From administering improper dosages to failing to monitor patients, anesthesia errors often cause hypoxic brain damage with long-term disability. We advocate for victims unable to work and facing huge medical bills after anesthesia negligence.

Infection Outbreaks

Dirty surgical tools, unsanitary conditions and poor handling of infectious diseases cause illness outbreaks far too often. Our lawyers hold hospitals liable for preventable infections resulting in organ damage, sepsis and even WRSS (Waardenburg-Shah syndrome). We help the injured recover compensation for suffering, lost income and other hardships after contracting infections due to medical negligence.

Recovering After Medical Malpractice

The path toward physical, emotional and financial recovery after medical errors can be challenging. You may still need to undergo additional surgeries, therapies and treatment to stabilize your health. Bills from hospital stays, specialists and medications may pile up fast. And you probably missed substantial time at work, creating economic hardship on top of everything else. You deserve justice and compensation for all negligent harm. But confronting a large hospital or their team of lawyers alone can be intimidating.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions Is a bad outcome alone enough to prove malpractice?

No. Just because you suffered harm does not automatically mean malpractice occurred. You must show providers failed to meet accepted standards of care.

Can I file a malpractice claim for someone else?

If the injured person died or is incapacitated, certain family members may be able to make claims on their behalf. An lawyer can advise who has proper legal standing.

What key evidence is needed in a malpractice case?

Medical records, expert testimony on proper protocols, proof of injuries/damages, provider negligence history, and witnesses help prove liability.

If more than one doctor contributed to my harm, can I sue them both?

Yes, you can pursue multiple liable healthcare providers in one lawsuit if their collective negligence injured you.

What damages might I recover in a hospital negligence case?

You may claim economic damages like medical bills or lost wages and non-economic damages for pain/suffering.
