Doctors, surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and others in the health care industry owe a reasonable duty of care to patients. This means they must provide accurate, effective, and reasonably safe medical treatment to patients to improve their health and well-being. Failure to do so could result in serious injuries or even death.
Common types of medical malpractice cases involve:
Surgical errors often involve leaving a surgical instrument or sponge inside the patient’s body, operating on the wrong body part, and performing the incorrect procedure. These errors could have devastating consequences, and victims may need corrective surgery and other long-term treatment to recover.
Birth injuries are often caused by failure to identify and treat fetal distress, pulling too hard on the baby during birth, or using forceps incorrectly. In addition, doctors must provide accurate diagnoses to patients to ensure they receive accurate and effective treatment. Failure to correctly diagnose cancer or other serious conditions could result in the patient receiving incorrect and ineffective treatment. Furthermore, medication and anesthesia errors could lead to serious injuries and death.
