Birth Injuries

The day a child is born should be an event filled with excitement, joy, and love. When parents find out that their child was injured during delivery, the news can be devastating. When the birth injury could have been prevented, parents should consider their legal options. Birth injuries can occur throughout the birthing process and for many reasons. Some are minor issues. Some can be quite catastrophic. Some of these injuries may not be diagnosed for months or years before surfacing.

Failure to Diagnose

When a patient puts trust in a medical professional, he or she hopes to be in the hands of a competent person. Effective medical care needs to be prompt and correct. When you go to your doctor for an unknown problem or symptom, you believe that he or she will do a thorough job, meeting or exceeding a certain level of care. You believe that your doctor will exhaust every medical test in order to determine your ailment.

Surgical Errors

If you or a loved one have undergone surgery, you hope that everything goes well and the doctor declares the procedure a success. In some unfortunate cases, mistakes are made. Though mistakes happen in surgery, it does not automatically mean that you have a case for medical malpractice. In order for the law to consider the mistake medical malpractice, the surgery must have fallen below the acceptable medical standard of care and, in turn, caused you serious injury. Simply put, a surgical error is a preventable mistake that occurs during surgery.

Medication Errors

Medication has many uses. If you are hurt, it can relieve pain. If you are sick, it can cure you. If you suffer from a long-term problem, it can improve your quality of life. If medical professionals deviate from the standard of care regarding medication, you can be seriously injured. The wrong medication has been also known to kill. Health care providers have a level of care they must satisfy regarding medicating a patient in a variety of medical situations. They must use caution when prescribing, administering, filling, and assessing the medication you take.
