Recovering Damages On Behalf Of Clients For All Types Of Medical Negligence
Medical malpractice is a type of professional negligence. When a doctor’s treatment of a patient fails to meet the regular standard of care, they can be liable for medical malpractice. Types of medical malpractice can include:
- Failing to diagnose a client properly
- Failing to treat a client properly
- Making mistakes during surgery
- Causing injuries during the birth of a child
- Neglecting a client in the emergency room
- Administering the wrong medications
- Administering the wrong dose of a medication or anesthesia
Essentially, the most common types of medical malpractice center around failing to diagnose a patient accurately, failing to treat a patient properly or making a mistake during the treatment of a patient that directly results in further injury, illness or damage to the patient.
