Malpractice Attorneys at BNI Law
When you are facing some sort of medical issue and need to be treated for something, you turn to medical professionals who you think have the training and reputation to do an adequate job. While humans are prone to error in a variety of different ways, sometimes things can happen due to negligence or serious error which can lead to patients suffering injuries caused by a doctor. Every situation is different, and people aren’t always sure, but these cases are referred to as medical malpractice.
What are the common types of medical malpractice?
Misdiagnosis—If a doctor examines a patient and fails to diagnose the correct illness. Unfortunately, due to a misdiagnosis, a patient is prevented from getting adequate treatment for what they have.
Delayed Diagnosis—Similar to misdiagnosis, but in this case, a doctor makes an incorrect diagnosis at first, but the patient eventually receives an accurate one. This delay in receiving treatment in a timely manner is what could result in the patient becoming more ill than they needed to be.
Failure to treat—In this case, the patient receives the right diagnosis, but the doctor fails to recommend an appropriate treatment. They tend to occur when a doctor or facility might release a patient too early or fail to set up the appropriate follow up care, etc.
Surgical Errors—As this implies, there are many kinds of surgical errors that can occur during a procedure. Incorrect surgery, damaged organs or nerves during the procedure, administering incorrect amounts of anesthesia, using non-sterile equipment, amongst others. These can obviously have significant consequences that can lead to further injury and low quality of life.
