Common Types of Medical Malpractice

There are numerous ways medical malpractice may occur, any of which may result in serious and lasting injury to a patient. Following are some examples:

  • Medication and prescription errors (prescribing too much or the wrong drug, for instance)
  • Surgical mistakes (such as operating on the wrong patient or body part)
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Birth injuries
  • Anesthesia malpractice
  • Emergency room errors
  • Dental Malpractice
  • Psychiatric malpractice
  • Plastic and cosmetic surgery malpractice

In any of these situations, a patient may suffer from an injury that leads to a great deal of physical pain and emotional trauma, as well as the risk of scarring or a permanent disability. Although it may seem difficult or impossible to recover and rebuild your life, by seeking justice and recovering from financial damages, you may be able to achieve peace of mind and a more secure financial future.

How to Prove Liability in Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice cases can be especially difficult to resolve. Why? One reason is that it’s often you against someone who likely has a far greater knowledge of medicine and will use this to their advantage. Also, people tend to only visit doctors when they are already ill or injured, so a medical professional whose job is in jeopardy may argue that your ailment was caused naturally rather than by their negligence.

Fortunately, when you work with a medical malpractice attorney at Remer, Georges-Pierre & Hoogerwoerd, PLLC, we can investigate your accident and interview other expert medical professionals in the field to provide evidence and testimony to back up your case. We understand the unique challenges these cases present and will be able to devise strategies to protect you from potential arguments.

Are All Medical Mistakes Worthy of a Malpractice Lawsuit?

No, but it’s always worth asking a lawyer about. As a patient undergoing surgery or other medical procedures, you always assume some risk that your body may not cooperate. This is not the physician's fault.

However, many times people suffer far greater injuries as a result of a physician’s negligence or irresponsible practices. For example, if your surgeon performed the wrong surgery or provided an incorrect diagnosis before prescribing you medication, you may be eligible for damages. It is always important to speak with a legal professional first.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Medical Malpractice Claim?

While each case is unique, the following are common types of damages that could be pursued:

Compensatory Damages:

  • Medical Expenses: Reimbursement for previous and future medical bills related to the malpractice.
  • Lost Income: Compensation for income lost because of the malpractice, including future earnings if the injury diminishes work capacity.

Non-Economic Damages:

  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional despair, and overall suffering caused by the malpractice.
  • Loss of Consortium: Damages awarded for the impact the malpractice has on the relationships of the affected individual.

Punitive Damages: In some instances of extreme negligence or intentional misconduct, punitive damages could be pursued to penalize the responsible party and discourage similar behavior in the future.

Wrongful Death Damages: If the medical malpractice results in the tragic loss of life, surviving family members may seek damages for funeral costs, loss of financial support, and the emotional toll of losing a loved one.
