    • The Most Common Cases of Medical Malpractice You Should Be Aware Of
    • “Today, Americans have a number of healthcare options to keep their health in tiptop shape.”
    • Unfortunately, there are times when instead of making patients feel better, doctors and other medical professionals make people worse because of oversight and neglect. This is called medical malpractice and this is the time when you need to call a medical malpractice attorney who will help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.
    • Medical malpractice can happen in different ways. Some are rare and there are those that occur more often.
    • Misdiagnosis by Medical Professionals The most common medical malpractice is misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis. Giving a proper diagnosis is the first and possibly the most crucial step in the treatment plan of a patient. “Without proper diagnosis, the patient cannot weigh his or her options.”
    • Misdiagnosis can lead to wrong medication or incorrectly subjecting a patient to unnecessary procedures. Worst case scenario, an inaccurate diagnosis can lead to the untimely death of a patient.
    • In this case, a wrongful death attorney will try to prove that a doctor did not perform all the necessary measures and steps to give out the correct diagnosis. This is done by getting a competent doctor to diagnose the same case and if this doctor gets it right, then a medical malpractice claim can begin.
    • Anesthesia Errors Another common case of medical malpractice is anesthesia error. Administering anesthetic is routine in the medical community, but if not done properly, the consequences are debilitating. “If a patient is given too much anesthesia, the patient can fall into a coma or die.”
    • On the flipside, if a patient is given too little anesthesia, he or she can wake up in the middle of the surgery and feel extreme pain which can send the body into shock.
    • There are other aspects that need to be carefully considered such as medical history and allergies and if there’s an oversight, then it’s the job of a medical malpractice attorney to prove it in court and get you the compensation for the damages that were inflicted.
    • Surgical Errors There are also a number of medical malpractice claims that are filed every day because of surgical errors. Surgeries are delicate procedures that are naturally associated with certain risks, but this does not give doctors room to be negligent of their patients.
    • Some of the most common errors that can happen during a surgery include: • damaging body organs • operating on the wrong body part • leaving surgical instruments inside the patient’s body
    • Nurses can also be held liable if they did not administer the necessary post-operative care because this can cause infection and the patient can even die. As an added precautionary measure, don’t sign any surgical waiver until the attending physician explains all the details of the procedure to you.
    • Fighting medical malpractice in court can be stressful. If you believe that you or one of your family members was a victim of medical malpractice, hiring an experienced medical malpractice attorney should be your first priority.
    • When you need an experienced attorney who will handle your case himself, ensuring that the legal system treats you and your family fairly, call the Millea Law Firm.
    • Their focus is on personal injury and wrongful death. Your attorney will work directly with you, giving you individual attention and personally preparing your case.
