Injuries and medical malpractice claims

Most people are able to receive the medical treatment they need without any problems arising. This is not always true; however, with some people being injured or becoming ill along the way.

A medical malpractice claim can result from many circumstances, including but not limited to the following:

-- Failure to diagnose. For example, an emergency room doctor may fail to diagnose you with a serious disease, such as cancer, which leads to additional problems down the road.

-- Birth injuries. Medical negligence can lead to many types of birth injuries, such as brain damage and cerebral palsy.

-- Surgery errors. A surgeon can make many mistakes, such as operating on the wrong body part or the wrong person altogether. This can lead to permanent disability, paralysis and even death.

-- Prescription errors. If a doctor orders the wrong type of medication or a pharmacist improperly fills a prescription, the consequences can be serious.

-- Nursing home negligence. Residents of a nursing home expect to be treated with care at all times, but issues related to improper care can and do come about.
