A personal injury case alleging medical malpractice is one of the most intricate and challenging cases to prove. These cases hinge on an attorney’s ability to comprehend and explain the complicated sequence of events and applicable medical issues. Additionally, huge files of medical records and expert testimony must be understood and presented. Typically, a medical malpractice suit will fall under one of two types; either the injury or damage was the result of a negligent or obviously wrong medical procedure or treatment, for instance amputating the wrong limb. Or, when a physician or health care practitioner does not follow standard of care and misses a diagnosis or treatment, and the result is injury or damage.
Whether a malpractice case is one of commission or omission, medical malpractice suits generally fall under these broad categories:
- Medical error
- Improper care/delayed care
- Medication error/improper drug, dosage, or administration of medication
- Anesthesia error
- Surgical error
- Birth injuries
- Negligence in long-term health care facilities/nursing homes
