Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice may take on many forms. This site contains a good deal of information about the different types of medical malpractice and negligence cases that our attorneys can handle, such as:

Medication Errors
Medication errors are one of the leading types of medical malpractice in the U.S. today. These errors may occur because a doctor mistakenly writes down the wrong prescription, because a pharmacist dispenses the wrong medication or because a nurse administers the wrong dose to a patient. A doctor may misdiagnose a medical condition and therefore prescribe the wrong medication or may write a prescription for a medicine that will react violently to another medication the patient is already on. In any scenario, a patient may be left suffering from serious side effects that may lead to lasting injury or even death. Getting to the bottom of medication error cases is a key part of our firm's legal practice, and we utilize our resources to determine what party can be held accountable. Whether it was the wrong medicine or the wrong dose, we can help. Click here to read more about medication errors.

We are also skilled in handling cases that involve a failure to diagnose a medical condition, delayed diagnosis, birth injuries, plastic surgery malpractice, surgical injuries and errors, emergency room misdiagnosis or malpractice and gastric bypass errors.

In any situation where a doctor or any medical professional fails to provide a patient a level of care according to accepted medical standards, the patient may be at risk of serious injury or even death. Doctors are held to a higher standard in regard to legal accountability, due to the nature of their work and the significant impact their mistakes or negligence can have.
