The many types of medical malpractice claims

In a perfect world, there would never be a need for a medical malpractice claim. In the real world, however, things don't work this way. No matter how much caution is taken in the medical industry, there are always times when mistakes are made. As a result, patients are injured, become ill, and in the worst of situations, are killed.

There are many types of medical malpractice claims, with these five among the most common:

-- Surgery errors. There are many types of surgery errors, such as when a doctor operates on the wrong body part.

-- Failure to diagnose. This comes into play when a medical professional overlooks a sign of a serious issue, such as cancer.

-- Birth injuries. When an infant suffers severe injury or passes on due to a medical error.

-- Prescription errors. This includes situations in which the wrong medication is prescribed or a pharmacist fills the wrong prescription.

-- Nursing home negligence. As the name suggests, this comes about when a nursing home resident suffers injury or death due to negligence.

Nobody wants to make a medical malpractice claim, but you must realize that this is something you can do if your health has been compromised.
