Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

Medical malpractice occurs when an individual suffers injury or death due to negligence or incompetence on the part of a medical professional. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, medical errors cause approximately 250,000deaths each year in the United States — only heart disease and cancer claim more lives each year than medical errors. In addition, medical malpractice often leads to significant injuries that can leave survivors with life-altering disabilities and disfigurements.

Among the most common forms of malpractice observed in the medical community are:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis — When a doctor makes an incorrect diagnosis, misses a diagnosis, or makes a delayed diagnosis, the recommended treatment may no longer be an effective option for the patient.
  • Childbirth injuries — Negligence from a physician or nurse can occur before, during, or after childbirth that causes injury to the infant or mother.
  • Medication errors — An incorrect dosage or method of administration are just two kinds of negligent medication mistakes that can cause serious harm.
  • Anesthesia errors — Errors by an anesthesiologist, such as failing to monitor vital signs or administering too much medication, oftentimes lead to fatal consequences.
  • Surgery errors — Negligence can occur before, during, or after surgery and leave patients with infections and other complications.

Medical errors occur at a higher rate than originally believed. According to the British Medical Journal, an estimated 210,00 – 400,000 deaths each year are associated with medical errors. With an estimated 251,454 deaths in 2014 alone, medical errors would be the third leading cause of death in the United States behind only heart disease and cancer.

It is generally a good idea to start documenting. Document what exactly happened during the procedure and everything that occurs afterward. Take as many notes as you can regarding the surgery or procedure, lab results, and MRI or CT scan results. Receive a copy of your medical records and charts, too. Document the names of your doctors, nurses, surgeons, and any other healthcare professionals involved. Keeping a record and documenting these items may help your cause if a malpractice lawsuit is necessary. Our medical malpractice lawyers can assist you in collecting evidence and documenting, so it is important to contact Thomas J. Henry as soon as you can.

Yes. All that the consent form is doing is indicating that you have been informed of risks of the procedures. If the doctor is negligent in performing the care or surgery, you may still recover against that physician.

The length of a medical malpractice lawsuits can vary greatly from case to case. Variables that affect the length of time a case takes include complexity of the case, the willingness of the insurance company for the doctor, hospital, nurse, chiropractor or other medical practitioner to resolve the case, and how long it takes to fully determine your damages from the medical malpractice.

Standard of care is the expected method of treating a condition, injury, or disease. Failing to follow that standard of care is negligence or in other words, medical malpractice.
