Types of Medical Malpractice 

There are many types of medical malpractice that may occur in doctors’ offices, hospitals, pharmacies and other medical facilities. Any of these can result in severe injury or death to the patient, including:

  • Doctor error
  • Nurse error
  • Prescription error
  • Surgical error
  • Birth injury
  • Failure to diagnose a problem or disease
  • Misdiagnosis of a problem or disease
  • Failure to inform a patient of the risks of a procedure or treatment
  • Failure to refer a patient to a specialist
  • Failure to follow up on an abnormal test
  • Discharge of a patient from a hospital or medical facility before he or she is sufficiently healed
Medical malpractice cases generally take time to evaluate and pursue. However it is important to be aware that the state imposes strict time frames on any claims by way of statutes of limitations. If you do not comply with those time frames, your claim will fail. Contact an attorney as soon as you determine that malpractice has occurred.
