Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

No Longer Accepting Cases

Medical malpractice lawsuits generally involve patients who were injured or died from poor medical care or mistaken diagnosis by a doctor, nurse, technician, or other healthcare provider. Typically, these lawsuits must prove that the injury was caused by “negligence,” or failure to provide the proper standard of care that they would have received from another doctor in similar circumstances.

More Medical Malpractice Information

Medical errors kill more people each year than car wrecks. The Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences estimated that somewhere between 44,000 and 98,000 people are killed yearly in hospitals alone due to the negligence of healthcare providers. Hundreds of thousands of other people suffer injury due to medical negligence each year. Medical errors occur in many different ways. Common types of medical errors include:

  • Hospital infections
  • Cancer misdiagnosis
  • Failure to timely diagnose
  • Failure to timely treat
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Improper medication
  • Retained surgical instruments
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to timely perform a c-section
  • Surgical errors
  • Misinterpretation of radiological and other studies
