Know the Facts.
When the highly trained, well-educated medical professionals that we trust fail to provide the level of care owed to every patient, it is only right to hold them accountable. The unfortunate reality is that patients frequently find themselves facing devastating injuries and immense trauma due to errors, negligence, and misconduct on the part of medical professionals. Some of the most common situations that lead to medical malpractice suits include:
- Misdiagnosis - When you go to a doctor with symptoms, you rightfully expect and deserve an accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment. When medical professionals fail to diagnose you, your ability to get treatment is delayed which can lead to worsening symptoms and more rapid progression of illness.
- Medication errors – Medical professionals can fail to provide the right prescription to a patient, fail to provide correct dosage, or even fail to provide necessary medication altogether. Whether this is due to forgetfulness or overwork, these events are unacceptable. They put patients in great jeopardy and can lead to organ damage and death.
- Anesthesia errors – The use of anesthesia should be safe for most patients under careful supervision and diligent care. Injuries, illnesses, and death caused by anesthesia errors are usually a result of negligence. These can relate to dosage errors, lack of monitoring, and failure to recognize complications.
- Birth injuries – The birth of a baby should be a joyous occasion and it is tragic when mothers and babies are put at risk due to mishandling of pregnancy care, labor & delivery care, or neonatal care. Babies that suffer birth injuries are often left with serious physical and/or mental disabilities and the short-term & long-term effects on families can be devastating.
- Surgical accidents/errors – Having to go under the knife is scary enough. Patients should not have to worry about negligence, errors, or accidents happening before, during, or after surgery. These can have dire, life-changing consequences for patients.
