Medical malpractice is the exception to the rule that care providers must not do harm to patients.
Nothing is more shocking than going into the hospital to be helped and coming out more damaged than you went in — or not coming out at all.
Medical Professional Injuries Of Every Sort
Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals don’t set out to harm patients. They understand they have a duty of providing an expectable level of care at all times. Nevertheless, every year, thousands of medical errors strike families. Cases fall into one of several malpractice categories:
- Failure to diagnose a serious problem in a timely way
- Errors committed during birth
- Surgical and anesthesia errors
- Emergency room errors
- Injuries caused by hospital staff
- Medication errors — the wrong dosage or the wrong drug
- Laboratory and radiology errors
- Nursing home injuries
Oftentimes, these errors are unfixable, as in the case of the surgeon who removed the noncancerous kidney. Too often, the result of the error is permanent disability, loss of function, brain damage or death.
Medical malpractice claims are among the most challenging. You want to work with a law firm that is serious about the complexities of medical practice, and able to gather evidence despite stonewalling by hospitals, doctors and clinics.
