Medical malpractice is extremely difficult to deal with, especially since you trusted a medical professional or facility with caring for you or your loved one. Medical professionals are paid very well to treat disease, alleviate aches and pains, and prevent untimely deaths, not to cause them.
Unfortunately, too often physicians, nurses, therapists and other medical personnel fail to follow the standards of professional practice required under the circumstances. When their negligent acts or omissions cause a new injury, aggravate an existing injury, or lead to untimely death, the patient and/or family members suffer.
Negligence can arise in the following forms:
- Misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosing a disease, injury or condition
- Anesthesia-related error
- Failure to properly treat disease
- Prescription errors
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Failure to fully inform a patient of the risks of a procedure
- Failure to monitor a condition
- Error during delivery of an infant
