examples of medical malpractice

Medical malpractice can occur anytime a patient is being cared for and at anytime during their care. Many failures may result in a claim for medical negligence, including failing to:

  • Properly manage a pregnancy or safely deliver a baby
  • Properly diagnose a patient’s disease or injury
  • Leaving a sponge or surgical instrument in the patient
  • Operating on the wrong part of the body
  • Properly treat a condition
  • Properly prescribe a drug or treatment
  • Properly administer a drug, medication or treatment
  • Cease an ineffective treatment
  • Recommend or provide appropriate diagnostic testing
  • Inform about available treatment
  • Obtain a patient’s consent
  • Fully inform a patient of the risks before treatment
  • Perform surgery appropriately
  • Perform the correct surgery
  • Anticipate problems associated with the condition or injury

It is important to keep in mind that no medical professional can guarantee a cure or other successful outcome. Unsatisfactory results are not automatic grounds for a malpractice suit. However, if you believe you have a claim due to medical negligence — for example, a surgical error or birth injury — our experienced team of lawyers can help you evaluate your claim and advise you on the best strategy for moving forward.
