When Medical Professionals Make Mistakes, You May Have A Viable Claim
Medical professionals have a duty to their patients. When a medical professional commits an egregious error or fails to properly diagnose a condition, injury occurs. And sadly, all too often.
According to the Institute of Medicine, over 250,000 preventable patient deaths occurred in 2016. Today, that number is higher, making medical errors the third leading cause of death in the United States.
Various Types Of Medical Malpractice Accidents
Different medical professionals have different medical standards. For example, the standard of care for a medical doctor is different from the standard of care from a registered nurse.
However, all medical professionals must adhere to their field standards. When protocol is not followed, it can result in medical malpractice such as:
- Birth injuries
- Hospital deaths
- Medication errors
- Wrong site surgery
- Anesthesia failures causing brain injuries
- Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis
- Surgical errors
These types of accidents can have long-term effects on you and your loved ones. A surgical error can raise the need for another costly surgery; a birthing injury can cause your child to have brain damage or for your spouse to hemorrhage; and a delay in a diagnosis can result in death.
Fortunately, victims have the right to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation that has stemmed from these unnecessary injuries.
