Common reasons for medical malpractice claims

Even when two medical malpractice claims appear similar on the surface, there are finer details that make each one unique.

There are many circumstances that can lead to a medical malpractice claim, including but not limited to:

-- Birth injuries. This is when an infant is injured at birth as the result of a medical mistake, such as failing to order a cesarean section.

-- Failure to diagnose. Many doctors overlook signs of disease for one reason or another. As a result, it leads to the progression of the disease before treatment begins.

-- Surgery errors. Surgeons can make mistakes, such as operating on the wrong body part or accidentally injuring a person during a procedure.

-- Prescription errors. When a pharmacy fills the wrong prescription or a doctor orders the wrong medication, it can cause injury or death.

-- Nursing home negligence. This can include both accidental and intentional acts.

It is easy to believe that your medical team is the best of the best. Even so, it only takes one mistake to cause an injury or illness that causes harm. This is why it is important for patients to be as informed as possible.
