Types of Injuries Caused by Tampa Medical Malpractice

Doctors must provide their patients with a level of care that meets professional standards established by laws, regulatory agencies, and supervisory boards. When providers fail to provide care at this level and it results in an injury or other consequence, they can be held accountable for any damages related to the injury. 

Some of the injuries that might be caused by a lapse in a provider’s duty of care include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Misinterpreting or ignoring lab test results
  • Errors during surgery
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Anesthesia-related injuries
  • Prescription or medication errors
  • Childbirth complications

  • Loss of future earning capacity because of an acquired disability
  • Loss of consortium

FAQs

No. Only errors that represent a lapse in the provider's duty of care and that directly cause an injury. An attorney can help identify instances where your provider deviated from the expected standard and trace this deviation to your injury.

 A medical malpractice settlement estimates the future costs of care that are directly associated with your specific injury. Economic and medical consultants will help estimate this amount.

Many medical procedures and experimental treatments come with known risks. However, the physicians in these scenarios still have an explicit standard of care they must meet. If your physician deviated from the expected standards, they could be held liable.

Certain side effects and reactions are considered unavoidable or unforeseeable. However, physicians have a duty to warn patients, and they also have a duty to prevent foreseeable harm. For instance, if your doctor forgot that a drug you've been taking could react dangerously with a new drug, then they may be considered negligent.
