It is devastating to be injured or killed by the negligence or intentional acts of a healthcare provider. These are people who you place your life’s trust in.
Hospitals, doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, pharmacists, dentists, chiropractors etc., have all been held accountable for patient suffering, ranging from significant injury or death due to medical malpractice.
When these actions are not pinpointed legally as raising above a level of criminal law, you may still have a basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Cases of malpractice include, but are not limited to such things as:
- Medical Abuse & Neglect (Ex. Nursing Homes, ER-Hospitals)
- Missed or Delayed Diagnosis
- Medical Device Errors
- Medication/Pharmaceutical Errors (ex. Anesthesia Administration, Hepatitis or HIV Exposure)
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Birth Injuries
- Lack of Informed Consent
- Misread Medical Imaging (ex. X-ray, MRI/CAT scans, Ultrasounds etc.)
