February 7, 2022 | Medical Malpractice
Clients can file for medical malpractice when a doctor or other health care provider treats a patient negligently or in an unskilled manner. The negligence must have been significant, the standard of care lower than expected, and an injury caused in order to sue for medical malpractice. You may be unsure as to whether or not you have a case.
Common Malpractice Cases
Appendicitis is a common misdiagnosed condition that is confused with other abdominal conditions, and the patient later suffers serious injury or death. Heart disease is often misdiagnosed and patients with chest pains later go home and die of a heart attack. Cancer that is not properly diagnosed can cause the disease to spread.
Malpractice can occur in all medical situations, including dentistry, surgery, receiving treatments and medication, and monitoring of conditions.
