What Are Common Types of Medical Malpractice?


Most of the time when you seek out medical advice and treatment, things go well. Unfortunately, sometimes a procedure does not go as planned and medical malpractice occurs. Patients can be misdiagnosed, medications can be given to the wrong patient in the wrong amount, and the wrong pills may be given to the hospital by the pharmaceutical company. Physicians can improperly diagnose ailments such as heart disease or cancer, or they may provide negligent post-operative care. An infant may suffer injury during the birthing process.

In all of these cases, you may be able to bring an action against the party or parties who caused your injury. Medical malpractice cases are difficult to prove and require the gathering of large amounts of evidence as well as expert testimony.
