Contact an attorney if you suspect medical malpractice

Nothing is guaranteed in medicine. Knowing that, how do you tell the difference between an ordinary bad outcome and medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice can occur under a variety of circumstances. It generally refers to mistakes that are made through a physician or medical provider’s negligence, which simply means making a mistake that an ordinarily cautious doctor or nurse would not make. Some common forms of medical malpractice include:

  • Prescription errors
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Wrong-patient surgery
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Failing to diagnose a condition
  • Unnecessary delays in diagnosis
  • Transmitting an infection to a patient
  • Neglecting or injuring a patient
