A Medical Malpractice lawsuit may seem serious, but is because it is. Doctors have an obligation to their patients to do everything that they can to help them and to ensure quality work. Errors can have serious consequences that can affect you for the rest of your life both physically and financially. If you have been injured due to negligence, you deserve compensation.
There are many different types of errors that doctors or hospitals can make that are considered medical malpractice. These can include surgical errors, mistakes caused by negligence or misdiagnosis or delay of diagnosis. Surgical errors can be mistakes such as performing surgery on the wrong side of the body or site, making an error during surgery, puncturing an organ during surgery or an anesthesiologist error. Injures caused by negligence can include negligence by a doctor, hospital, nurse or nursing home. Examples of negligence include improper medication, neglect, or failure to respond quickly in an emergency. Misdiagnosis or delay of diagnosis is usually the most serious in circumstances involving cancer. Once the real illness is found, it may be too late to treat.
