When patients put their trust in doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other healthcare providers, they rightly expect competent, attentive care that meets accepted medical standards. However, medical mistakes happen more often than people may realize. These errors can leave patients permanently disabled, disfigured, or lead to wrongful death.

Some common examples of medical malpractice committed in hospitals and healthcare facilities include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a serious illness or condition
  • Surgical errors and mistakes during operations
  • Improper administration or dosing of anesthesia

The aftermath of medical malpractice can be devastating. In addition to severe physical injuries from incorrect medical treatment, victims experience traumatic emotional effects and staggering medical costs plus lost income.
