Malpractice Lawyer with BNI Law

Are you unsure if you or a loved one are in need of a Malpractice Lawyer? We put a lot of faith in our medical professionals, and we can even admit that mistakes are both possible and sometimes even excusable depending on the circumstances. While we don’t expect doctors to consistently perform miracles, we do expect them to have professionality, responsibility, and the desire to perform their best care on their patients. If you have received improper care and expect negligence, then you may need to consider hiring a Malpractice Lawyer.

Some of the most common cases of medical malpractice are:

  • Misdiagnosis– simply put, if a patient was given an incorrect diagnosis, incorrectly given no diagnosis of an illness at all, or even gave a diagnosis with a condition they don’t have, this could result in the patient not receiving the proper care for what they do actually have, or they receive treatments they don’t actually need. It would count as malpractice if the doctor failed to do what others would have done in a similar situation.

  • Delayed Diagnosis– similar to a misdiagnosis, a delayed one means that after a doctor makes an incorrect diagnosis, the patient eventually receives the correct one. This delay results often in the condition getting worse because the patient didn’t receive the right treatment in time. For it to qualify as malpractice, the doctor would have assessed the patient less competently than other doctors would have.

  • Failure to treat– if a doctor does give the right diagnosis but fails to recommend adequate treatment, this could qualify as malpractice due to a doctor not treating all their patients with the basic standard of care.

  • Surgical Errors– these errors can result in serious injury and can include performing incorrect or unnecessary procedures, damaging organs, nerves, or tissues, administering incorrect amounts of anesthesia, using non-sterile surgical instruments, leaving medical equipment inside the patient, and not providing adequate care afterwards.

  • Birth Injury– as implied, this occurs during birth but can have devastating long-term effects on a person. This form of malpractice can occur due to inadequate prenatal care or negligence during childbirth itself.

  • Medical Product Liability– some patients suffer due to a medical device that was poorly designed. If the manufacturers of faulty medical devices knew about a defect, they could be held liable.
