Medical personnel who fail to provide the expected level of care, leading to an injury, illness or death could potentially be held liable for medical malpractice. All medical personnel are required to have extensive education and training before they can treat, diagnose, prescribe or give advice to a patient. Their choices and decisions are measured against what another physician or medical professional would have done in the same situation.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Physicians, surgeons, dentists, nurses, psychiatrists, hospitals, surgery centers and pharmacists can all be liable for medical malpractice or negligence when they fail to properly care for or treat a patient. A Trial Attorney from Viper Law Group will provide you or a loved one with a free consultation if you have been injured by a doctor, hospital or other medical professional.
Medical malpractice cases can include:
Misdiagnosis of cancer
Failure to diagnose disease or injury
Emergency room errors
Hospital/Surgery Center errors
Although there are other cases which may be medical malpractice, the above cases are the ones we sadly see the most in our offices. Because of the great responsibility medical professionals have and the ability to do tremendous harm, we must examine their choices with great scrutiny.
