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 wrong site as many a 20 times weekly.
