Why filing a case against medical malpractice is important?


Medication errors are mistakes made by medical staff or a surgery team that can lead to death, permanent disability, or temporary impairment and disfigurement. While this specialty area of personal injury is unique, certain situations and conditions are extremely common. For example, a common type of malpractice is when a doctor provides negligent prenatal care or performs a cesarean section without approval from the patient.


 A case involving a wrongful death or birth injury may include allegations that an obstetrician negligently failed to properly diagnose anoxic brain damage during labor or delivery. Another possible malpractice claim occurs when a patient suffers from an apparent act of malpractice but it is later determined that the patient’s ailment was caused by a pre-existing medical condition.


Common medical malpractices in hospitals

Anesthesia errors are extremely common. They can result in a wide range of consequences such as pain and memory issues, the need for corrective surgery, and even death. If you've been injured after undergoing anesthesia, it's important to understand what qualifies as an anesthesia error so you can determine if the persons who are responsible for your injury were negligent.


Not all injuries that occur in an emergency room are the result of negligence. However, problems can arise if there are errors in the provision of care. If someone you love has been injured due to a hospital’s negligence, it is important to explore your legal options for compensation.


It can affect the patient's recovery time, ability to function, and overall quality of life. A delay in diagnosis can also have devastating effects. Symptoms of a medical device error are similar to symptoms most people have when they are sick. If your doctor diagnoses you with the flu and you have an MRI error, it could be fatal if not treated properly.  Because symptoms of a medical device error mimic those of everyday illnesses, it will likely be difficult for you or your doctor to realize that a problem exists.
