Thousands of people in the United States die each year as a result of medical error. According to a comprehensive and highly regarded hospital study by Harvard University, more than 1 million people suffer injuries each year as a result of mistakes caused by doctors, anesthesiologists, residents, nurses, technicians, and malfunctioning medical devices. Medical malpractice also occurs in other settings, such as doctor’s offices or nursing homes. Most of the victims never know their injury was due to medical error. And most never sue.
But investigations into such personal injury cases often reveal medical malpractice on the part of doctors, nurses and other health care, professionals. And many lead to successful medical malpractice lawsuits. Whether failure to timely diagnose cancer or other diseases, inattention to patients, birth injuries due to negligence or medication errors, the results are often catastrophic. In many cases, the patient dies.
Common medical malpractice injuries include:
- Misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis
- Childbirth injuries
- Negligent prenatal care
- Medication Errors
- Anesthesia Errors
- too much anesthesia
- too little anesthesia
- failure to recognize allergic reactions
- Surgery Errors
- leaving surgical instruments inside the patient
- wrong body part
- puncturing internal organs
