Medical Malpractice

Posted on

Medical malpractice is a general, all-encompassing term which includes several different types of injuries or death that can occur within a medical setting.  In short, medical malpractice is the negligence of a medical professional in providing treatment which then results in injury or in death for the patient.  This negligence can come in many forms, including a practicing error or an act of omission (failing to take proper action). Although there are many types of medical negligence cases, many of them fall under certain generalized categories.

  • Surgical Injuries: instruments not recovered, improper surgical procedure, post operation complications, etc.
  • Anesthesia Errors: administering too much or too little, allergies, interactions, etc.
  • Medication Errors: miscalculation or dosing of medicines, writing a prescription for the wrong medication, etc.
  • Medical Product/Drug Recalls or Adverse Reactions
  • Improper/Delayed Diagnosis
  • Pregnancy Malpractice: prenatal care negligence, birthing negligence or accidents, etc.
  • Hospital Errors
  • Pharmacy Errors: filling the wrong medication, medicine interactions, etc.
