How Does Medical Malpractice Occur?

When you go to the emergency room, hospital, doctor, or any other medical facility for any reason, you assume that your well-being will be looked out for. Doctors are bound by a medical standard and there are certain rules that all medical staff should follow to ensure your healthcare is up to that standard.

We believe that the responsible individual should be held accountable for their actions, both financially and legally. Any doctor or medical staff who is careless in their practice should not be allowed to continue with their irresponsible behavior.

A few common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Birth injuries
  • Missed diagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Medical device errors
  • Lack of informed consent
  • Dental malpractice
  • Nursing home abuse/neglect
  • Anesthesia malpractice
  • Medication errors
