Types of Medical Malpractice
Different medical professionals tend to be held to different standards. Even though doctors are held to different ideals than nurses or physician assistants, they all should do their best to keep their patients safe and in quality care.
When any professional healthcare provider fails to properly care for their patient, whether on purpose or accidentally, serious consequences may occur. Medical malpractice cases can involve a wide range of variables, including:
- Surgical errors
- Birth injuries
- Medication errors
- Laboratory errors
- Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis
- Lack of adequate patient monitoring
- Anesthesia failures causing brain injuries
- Hospital deaths
If you or a loved one received improper care from a doctor, nurse, physical therapist, or any other healthcare professional, it is imperative that you contact an attorney. The right legal counsel may be able to help you pursue financial compensation.
