Medical Malpractice

 

Medical Malpractice is an act or omission by a health care provider (doctor, hospital, nurse, or staff) in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of care, causing injury or death to the patient. This type of malpractice is not limited to any particular field or practice of medicine. The applicable standard of care is based on the practice in the medical community. There are many forms of medical malpractice, including;

 

  • Anesthesia Errors

  • Birth injury

  • Cancer Misdiagnosis

  • Cosmetic Surgery Error

  • Defective drugs or products

  • Delayed diagnosis

  • Dental malpractice

  • Emergency Room Error

  • Failure to diagnose

  • Failure to prevent blood clot

  • Failure to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis

  • Failure to suspend medication

  • Gastric bypass error

  • Heart attack Misdiagnosis

  • Leaving surgical instruments in a patient's body

  • Nursing negligence

  • Nursing home negligence

  • Patient abandonment

  • Performing unnecessary surgery

  • Post-surgical infection

  • Prescription drug error

  • Psychiatric malpractice

  • Practicing without a license

  • Surgical Error

 

In order to prove your malpractice claim, your attorneys will work closely with medical experts, who have extensive knowledge in the field that applies. These experts use the facts of your case to explain why the medical treatment you received (or did not receive) was below the standard of care. Because of this violation of the standard, experts will then explain the damages caused to the patient through the substandard care.
