Common Types Of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can occur in a number of different ways, but certain forms are more common than others:
- Misdiagnosis: In some cases, being treated for a condition you don’t have can be even more dangerous than not receiving any treatment for a condition you do have. In other cases, taking too long to diagnose a disease, like cancer, could lead to serious complications or even death.
- Failure to Treat: Whether you weren’t referred to the correct specialist or if your disease was dismissed as something not worth treating, your doctor’s failure to treat your condition could result in serious complications or even death.
- Prescription Medication Errors: People over the age of 60 made up approximately half of all deaths caused by medication errors, but anyone could suffer serious side effects when prescribed with the wrong medication.
- Surgical Errors: These types of errors include a number of issues, including damage to an organ, nerve, or other body part during surgery, and in some cases could even include operating on the wrong patient altogether.
