When you visit a doctor or receive treatment from nurses, medical technicians, or others in the medical field, you expect to have quality care, and you trust these individuals to look after your best interests.

Whether this type of medical negligence is due to carelessness, overwork, lack of proper training, failure of diagnostic equipment, or any other reasons, it can lead to very serious personal injuries.

Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals are required to follow certain standards when providing treatment. Under these standards, they should use accepted medical practices, and they should follow the same procedures and take the same actions that another reasonable medical professional with an equivalent level of training would use in a similar situation. Failure to follow these standards is considered negligence, and when it leads to patient injuries, a doctor who breached the standard of care should be held responsible.

Medical malpractice can take a wide variety of forms, including:

  • Misdiagnosis/missed diagnosis - When a doctor diagnoses a patient with the wrong condition or fails to recognize a condition altogether, a patient may not receive the proper treatment in time. This can lead to a worsening of a condition, resulting in deterioration of the patient's health, and in some cases, it may even lead to wrongful death.
  • Surgical errors - There are a wide variety of mistakes that can be made during surgery, including operating on the wrong part of the body, accidentally damaging internal organs, or leaving instruments or objects inside the body. Anesthesia errors during a surgical procedure can also seriously harm a patient, leading to brain injuries, respiratory failure, or death.
  • Birth injuries to children or mothers - If a mother's and child's condition are not properly monitored during pregnancy, or if the proper procedures are not followed during labor and delivery, the child may suffer injuries such as brain trauma, broken bones, or hypoxia. This can lead to life-long disabilities such as cerebral palsy. Mothers may also experience life-threatening issues such as hemorrhaging, uterine rupture, or preeclampsia, and they can suffer permanent injuries if these issues are not addressed quickly and effectively.
  • Medication errors - If the incorrect drugs are prescribed, this could lead to a patient's condition going untreated, and they could experience side effects from a medication that was administered unnecessarily. Doctors should also be aware of potential allergic reactions that can threaten a patient's health and life.
  • Nursing home negligence - If nursing home patients are not provided the proper medical treatment, they can suffer serious injuries that affect their quality of life. Neglect of a patient's needs can lead to falls, bed sores, malnutrition, dehydration, infections, or other issues, and any of these could result in a resident's wrongful death.
