SIGNS OF A POTENTIAL MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE
When medical professionals conduct themselves outside of the established standard of care, many types of errors can and do occur. Some of the situations we see include:
• Misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosing a disease, injury or condition;
• Failure to properly diagnose a medical condition;
• Surgical errors;
• Medication errors;
• Conducting an operation on the wrong body part;
• Failure to obtain fully informed consent from a patient;
• Error during the delivery of an infant
• Hospital-acquired infections
Most medical care providers provide excellent medical care. Sometimes in medicine, there is an unavoidable bad or unfavorable outcome. In other cases, a provider either did something wrong or failed to do the right thing. We can help you understand what happened to you or your loved one and ensure that the appropriate medical professionals are held accountable for their actions.
