Types of Medical Malpractice 

Doctors and medical professionals are held to a higher standard when concerning our health, well-being and lives. Any mistake they make can be permanent, and life altering. Medical malpractice is not to be taken lightly, and is not to be confused with pre-existing issues. If you or someone you know has been a victim of a medical malpractice injury, illness, or death, you may be able to be compensated for those damages. Before you assume that you have a case, be sure to understand what justifies medical malpractice issues. There are different types of malpractice, two known ones are:

A surgical error is an area you may be familiar with as this is easy to discover. Suppose you went into the hospital for surgery, and surgery does not go as planned. The doctor may leave foreign objects in the body, incise at the wrong area of the body, or just fail miserably in your procedure by not being prepared. These things can lead to fatalities or lifelong health-related issues.

A misdiagnosis is a big deal. If the doctor provides the incorrect diagnosis, this means your issue has gone unnoticed and untreated. If the doctor says there are no illnesses or health concerns, and later on you discover that there were, this is considered malpractice. With the incorrect diagnosis, you are given no or the incorrect treatment. Which may be of no help at all, or make your situation far worse. But there must be harm done.

There are several forms of medical malpractice, and it is best to speak with a skilled personal injury and malpractice attorney that understands what constitutes malpractice and is able to stand up and fight hospital insurance companies and their attorneys to ensure that you get what is owed to you or your loved one for your pain and suffering. Not every medical malpractice case will win big, and not every harmful encounter with a doctor or medical professional is considered medical malpractice, as a medical malpractice lawyer like one at The Lynch Law Group can tell you. However, if you do feel that you have been a victim, speak with someone right away. The right attorney will be able to review the details of your case, and tell you whether or not you have a case. If you suspect foul play or negligence in any way, you deserve to be heard, and if it is in fact a medical malpractice injury, you deserve to be compensated for the damages brought onto you. Discuss your case with a personal injury before it is too late.

As a disabled claimant, I can’t thank Hurwitz, Whitcher & Molloy enough for guiding me through these past fourteen years. No one else wanted my Workers’ Compensation case. No one! It was complicated. There were a lot of issues that made things difficult. They stuck with it well over a decade with preparedness, intelligence and grace. Mister Melvyn, he’s a good guy. Cathy, she’s so amazing.
