Common Types of Medical Malpractice in Hospitals

Medical errors leading to permanent disability or death often occur in hospitals. While not every mistake constitutes negligence, some common forms of negligent hospital care we see include:

  • Misdiagnosed Conditions - Failing to properly test for or diagnose infections, cancer, cardiac issues, and other conditions.
  • Surgical Errors - Mistakes made during invasive procedures, resulting in damage to organs, nerves and other tissues.
  • Medication Errors - Administering the wrong type or dose of medications.
  • Discharging Too Soon - Releasing a patient before it is medically safe.
  • Delayed Treatment - Failing to quickly follow up symptoms or diagnostic results.
  • Childbirth Injuries - Errors during labor or delivery leading to oxygen deprivation, nerve damage or other injury to the infant.

These types of medical errors frequently lead to devastating injuries for patients that drastically impact their quality of life.

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers conduct in-depth investigations to build strong negligence claims for victims of poor medical care. We leave no stone unturned while gathering evidence of substandard treatment to prove liability.

Initial Case Assessment

First, we perform an initial assessment during a free consultation to examine the sequence of events and potential breaches from all medical, hospital and provider records provided. We look for deviations from proper protocols, dangerous delays in treatment, surgical errors and other mistakes falling below the standard of care that may constitute negligence.

Lawyers investigate issues like:

  • Misinterpretation of scans, lab results and diagnostic tests
  • Administering contraindicated medications
  • Lack of follow-up care
  • Signs of infection or other complications improperly ignored
  • Birth injuries due to oxygen deprivation and other factors

Pinpointing gaps that increased injury risks establishes where probable medical negligence occurred.

Assembling a Specialized Medical Expert Team

Building proof of subpar medical care requires evaluating treatment decisions and mistakes from a clinical perspective per specialty medical subject matter experts.

Our firm commits substantial resources to compile an impressive medical review team of independent, renowned specialists from fields like:

  • Neurology
  • Cardiology
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Surgery
  • Pediatrics
  • Obstetrics

These medical experts analyze all case records to provide reports on adherences to or deviations from the legal standard of care. They also determine if errors identified increased harm risks for patients and assess the full extent of injuries caused.

Litigation Preparation and Support

In addition, we work with respected medical specialists to strengthen arguments on liability while preparing negligence claims for potential litigation. These renowned doctors and nurses can explain technical specifics and complex medical guidelines regarding appropriate standards of care to legal teams, insurance providers and judges/juries if trial becomes necessary.

With over 40 years of experience specifically investigating medical malpractice cases, our lawyers have the resources and expertise to build ironclad negligence claims for victims.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)What Makes a Medical Mistake Malpractice Instead of Just an Accident?

Doctors and hospitals have a legal duty under the standard of care to treat patients based on accepted best practices. If providers fail to meet this standard - causing significant harm through an error or omission - it is considered medical negligence.

What Types of Compensation May Be Available in a Hospital Negligence Claim?

You may recover current and future medical costs, lost wages & income, rehabilitation services, in addition to pain and suffering damages. If negligence caused death, families can pursue wrongful death damages.

Will My Malpractice Case Go to Trial?

The vast majority of hospital negligence claims settle out of court before trial. However, our firm fully prepares every single case for trial from the start - using renowned medical experts to strengthen claims and maximize our leverage with hospitals/insurance providers during settlement negotiations to get victims fair compensation.

How Will I Pay Legal Fees?

Medical malpractice cases are taken on a contingency fee basis - meaning legal fees are percentage-based and only paid if we secure financial damages for you. There are also no upfront costs for our services. We also offer free consultations and guidance.

How Long Do I Have to File a Negligence Claim in California?

You normally have 1 year from the date of injury - or 1 year from when evidence of negligence was or reasonably should have been discovered - to pursue a medical malpractice claim in California due to statutory limitations.

Have additional questions? Our Ripon medical malpractice lawyers from Moseley Collins Law offer no obligation, completely confidential legal consultations at no charge. We will evaluate your situation honestly and help get you pointed in the right direction.
