Medical Negligence is More Common Than You Think
No one likes to think about doctors making mistakes and hurting their patients. Unfortunately, medical mistakes are made everyday by all different healthcare providers. Estimates indicate that as many as 200,000 people die each year as a direct result of medical negligence. Even more patients suffer serious injury as a result of medical error. While doctors are prone to a variety of different types of mistakes, some of the most common errors that lead to a claim of medical malpractice include:
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose
- Errors with lab results
- Prescription drug overdoses or problems administering medications
- Failure to monitor for drug interaction problems
- Operating on the wrong patient
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Leaving a surgical sponge or instrument inside of a patient
- Botched surgery or treatment
When doctors make these and other mistakes, a patient suffers the consequences. In some cases, more expensive and more invasive treatment will become necessary as a result of the doctor’s error. In other situations, the harm done will be incurable or will lead to death.

Taking Legal Action For Medical Negligence

Medical malpractice cases require proving that the doctor provided unreasonably poor care to the patient and that the patient suffered harm as a direct result of the medical negligence. It can be difficult in many cases to take legal action and hold doctors accountable for their failures.
