When you go to a healthcare provider, you expect to be treated with high quality care. However, there are many instances in which a doctor is negligent, and it results in serious harm or even death.
To learn about some types of medical malpractice lawsuits, please read on!
Sometimes, doctors can prescribe the wrong medication to treat you and as a result, you end up getting sick or worsening your condition. If this is the case, you will need to make sure you keep record of all the pills and prescription papers so that they can be used in evidence.
Mistakes During Surgery
This is another common medical malpractice lawsuit because doctors can sometimes make mistakes during surgery. They can operate on the wrong site, perform the surgery on the wrong person, and in some cases, even accidentally leave surgical tools inside the person they operated on!
Injuries During Birth
If there are mistakes during birth, you can hold the OBGYN who delivered your child accountable. There can be nerve damage, injuries to the spinal cord, cerebral palsy, and more. These issues could be caused by an incorrect delivery process done by the doctor.
This is probably one of the biggest issues that occur because a doctor sometimes does not properly diagnose your illness. This could result in improper care and treatment which could result in an even worse sickness or death.
Failure to Treat Properly
This happens if the doctor properly diagnoses your illness but doesn’t properly treat it. This is total negligence from the healthcare provider and can result in a huge lawsuit.
