What Counts As A Misdiagnosis?
You trust your doctors to examine you thoroughly and diagnose you correctly so that you can get the care you need to live a long, healthy life. When your medical provider misses a diagnosis or diagnoses you with the incorrect condition, you can miss out on necessary care or receive unnecessary treatments that cause harm.
- Failure To Diagnose
- Delayed Diagnoses
Is Your Doctor Guilty Of Failure To Treat?
Sometimes you receive the correct diagnoses, but then your health care provider fails to treat you according to acceptable standards of care. Your doctor may discharge you too soon, fail to provide or recommend adequate treatment, or neglect specialist referrals.
Because of this, failure to act where other physicians would can make your condition worse and end up causing more damage.
Harmful Surgical Errors & Anesthesia Errors
Surgical errors are another common category of medical malpractice cases. We’ve probably all heard of surgical tools being left behind, but did you know some surgical teams are guilty of operating on the wrong side or area of the body and performing operations on the wrong patients?
Surgery is scary enough. No one wants to suffer more because of the wrong anesthesia dosage or to come away with entirely unnecessary infections and injuries.
- Common Surgical Errors
- Incorrect Procedures
- Unnecessary Surgeries
- Damaging Organs & Nerves
- Incorrect Anesthesia Dosages
- Non-Sterile Surgical Instruments
- Leaving Behind Medical Equipment
- Inadequate Surgical Aftercare
Birth Injuries & Errors
Like having surgery, giving birth also comes with many risks. Both mother and newborn are entirely in the hands of the labor and delivery staff, OB-GYN, or birthing center personnel. When these doctors and other medical professionals are negligent, the results can be devastating.
No one wants to go through months of taking the best care possible of both expectant mother and developing baby only to have everything go wrong in the delivery room. If you or a loved one has suffered birth injuries or errors, consult with a medical malpractice lawsuit attorney as soon as possible.
- Inadequate Prenatal Care
- Birth Trauma
- Shoulder Dystocia
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Cerebral Palsy
- Infant Death
- Mother Death
Prescription Drug Errors
Illegibly written prescriptions, look-alike and sound-alike drugs, and computer errors are many ways for prescription drug errors to occur. Unfortunately, receiving the wrong dose, a mislabeled drug, or a medication you are allergic to can result in medical emergencies and sometimes even death.
