Examples of Compensable Medical Malpractice Injuries

There is a vast range of injuries caused by healthcare providers that may constitute medical negligence. Some of the more common medical errors leading to grave harm include:

  • Brain damage - Doctor or nurse negligence during labor and delivery can deprive the infant’s brain of oxygen, resulting in cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, development delays, and other neurological consequences. Trauma and medical emergencies can also lead to brain damage if not properly treated.
  • Spinal cord injuries - Mistakes during surgery can damage the spinal cord, causing partial or total paralysis of the arms and legs, loss of sensation, and impaired bodily functions.
  • Amputation - Surgical errors, medication overdoses destroying tissue, undiagnosed infections, and other mistakes can lead to severe limb amputation and disfigurement.
  • Surgical mistakes - Wrong-site surgery, retained surgical items, piercing of organs, uncontrolled bleeding, anesthesia errors, and negligent aftercare can cause serious harm or death.

Some other devastating injuries caused by medical negligence include blindness, toxic epidermal necrolysis (skin burning), organ failure, severe burns, and wrongful death.

If you or someone you care about is gravely injured, permanently disabled, or dies due to deficient medical treatment, you need strong legal advocates in your corner making those responsible accountable.

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

Part of securing justice for victims of medical negligence involves a rigorous investigation to prove that malpractice occurred. Our law firm undertakes meticulous preparation assessing each case’s merits. The key components we focus on include:

Collecting Relevant Documentation

The foundation of building a strong claim rest on comprehensive medical records, files and documentation. We gather:

  • Complete medical charts and history
  • Doctor's notes and nurses' reports
  • Specialist referrals and consults
  • Lab results, pathology reports, radiology films
  • Pharmacy details on medications prescribed and administered
  • Audio/video records of procedures

Thorough paperwork helps reconstruct what happened and identify deviations from standards of care.

Consulting Medical Experts to Establish Negligence

The opinions of medical specialists are crucial for substantiating allegations of malpractice. Typically, we consult with four or more experts certified in relevant fields, who review collected records to provide testimony on appropriate protocols versus improper treatment. Their findings greatly bolster claims of negligence.

Interviewing Patients and Family Members

In addition to paperwork trails, real people lie at the heart of malpractice cases - those directly impacted. We conduct extensive interviews about individuals’ recollections and experiences surrounding the incidents. Personal accounts supplement technical evidence portraying how poor healthcare harmed them.

Researching Provider Backgrounds for Patterns

Part of our investigation explores whether physicians, nurses or facilities have a history of misconduct, disciplinary actions or malpractice lawsuits implying repetitive substandard practices. Such histories can demonstrate systemic failings.

Through integrating these investigative approaches, our lawyers build compelling malpractice cases to fight for injury victims’ rights to fair restitution. The full picture must encompass both records and people. Contact us to discuss your situation in a free consultation.
