Common Medical Errors Resulting in Malpractice Suits

Hospital negligence can severely diminish quality of life through disabling injuries. The experienced medical malpractice lawyers at Moseley Collins Law frequently see the following errors:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of illnesses such as cancer or infections
  • Surgical mistakes like operating on the wrong body part or leaving foreign objects inside after surgery
  • Improper administration or prescription of medication
  • Failure to monitor patients appropriately
  • Not ordering necessary tests or providing vital treatments
  • Discharging patients prematurely
  • Birth-related injuries to mother or child from obstetrician negligence

These preventable errors might happen due to oversight, understaffing, fatigue, inadequate training, recklessness, or cost-cutting measures. However, harming a patient because proper procedures weren’t followed constitutes negligence.

Elements Needed to Build a Viable Medical Negligence Claim

Elements Needed to Build a Viable Medical Negligence Claim

Succeeding with hospital malpractice lawsuits requires meeting certain criteria through documented proof:

  • A clear patient-provider relationship existed where the healthcare team assumed responsibility for administering appropriate care
  • Medical providers demonstrated negligence through errors and deviations violating the legally defined standard of care
  • The negligent actions directly caused the patient’s additional injuries or damages
  • The impacts of the malpractice resulted in quantifiable economic and non-economic losses

The legal team at Moseley Collins Law conducts extensive investigations into how clients came to sustain harm under medical supervision. We pull and thoroughly review medical records, lab reports, doctor’s notes, imaging scans, pharmaceutical administration logs, and all other pertinent documentation to assemble evidence indicating negligence occurred.

Proving that below-standard treatment directly caused avoidable injury or death remains imperative for malpractice suits to proceed credibly. To prove causation, we collaborate closely with independent specialists and medical experts. For example, an esteemed doctor may analyze specifics of a patient’s wrecked health post-surgery to explain precisely how a surgeon puncturing internal organs led to massive hemorrhagic shock and cardiac arrest. Or specialist testimony might demonstrate that counter-indicated drugs given during labor and delivery directly caused an infant’s permanent brain damage.

Most malpractice insurance companies seek quick settlements to prevent negative publicity and expending resources on prolonged court battles. Our lawyers know how to negotiate firmly with even the most formidable hospital legal teams and insurance firms. By demonstrating our willingness to go the distance advocating for seriously harmed patients, we can often compel reasonable settlements covering victims’ losses. Out-of-court resolutions also spare clients needless stress while allowing providers to avoid public trials.

Note that when you choose Moseley Collins Law for your hospital negligence claim, we bring uncommon thoroughness to investigating and building cases.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)How much does it cost to hire you for a malpractice case?

We provide all legal services on a contingency-fee basis, meaning no settlement = no payment owed for our representation. Our fees only come from amounts awarded if we win compensation.

What medical mistakes warrant malpractice lawsuits?

Commonly seen incidents include surgical errors, misdiagnosis, medication errors, childbirth injuries, lack of informed consent, and more acts falling well below the established medical standard of care that directly cause patient injury or death.

What types of damages can a hospital malpractice settlement cover?

These settlements can provide compensation for medical costs, lost income and benefits, reduced future earnings capacity, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other applicable losses stemming from the malpractice.

How long do I have to file a medical malpractice lawsuit?

Every state has strict statutes of limitations for filing these cases, generally 1-3 years from injury or discovery of negligence. Evidence also disappears over time, so prompt legal action strengthens arguments.

What are signs of possible medical malpractice after an accident or procedure?

Seeking follow-up care and discovering health only worsened instead of recovering as expected warrants having the case further examined. Another red flag is providers avoiding questions about possible errors.
