Types of Medical Malpractice

Any time a doctor or healthcare provider offers substandard care to a patient below the level of care that a reasonable provider would have offered, the provider can be held legally accountable for the consequences. Some of the different types of situations that can result in a care provider being held responsible for medical malpractice can include:

Recent studies have shown that the majority of malpractice claims against primary care doctors occur as a result of a failure to diagnose medical conditions. Surgeons, however, have reportedly been known to make errors like leaving items inside of patients or operating on the wrong part or the wrong person. In fact, estimates from Johns Hopkins indicate that a surgical instrument may be left inside of a patient as many as 39 times each week, while surgeries are performed on the wrong person and/or the wrong site as many a 20 times weekly.

Holding Healthcare Providers Responsible for Medical Malpractice

Medical mistakes can cause devastating outcomes to patients. Diseases that might have been curable can become death sentences, while other patients may need repeated surgery or may suffer permanent impairment due to a botched medical procedure. If your child has been the victim of a medical mistake, you have the right to be fully compensated for all losses and injuries by the doctor, hospital or other care provider who made the error. You should be compensated for medical bills and costs; lost income; pain and suffering; emotional distress and wrongful death arising from the injury. Monetary damages for malpractice cases can be obtained through an out-of-court settlement or a lawsuit. In either case, a medical malpractice lawyer should be consulted to help with your claim and ensure that justice is done.
