Did You Experience Medical Malpractice?

There are many types of medical malpractice that can severely harm patients and put their lives at risk. It’s possible that one of the following incidents happened to you:

  • Missed Diagnosis/Failure to Diagnose. A doctor that should have been able to analyze your symptoms and diagnose you may have misread tests or ignored symptoms and either didn’t realize the health issue or failed to arrive at a diagnosis in a timely manner.
  • Misdiagnosis. Sometimes, doctors may look at your symptoms and give you an incorrect diagnosis. You may think you’re treating the problem but you aren’t, allowing the issue to progress or get worse. For example, misdiagnosing someone with cancer when they don’t have it could mean they are unnecessarily going through chemotherapy, which can have major effects on the body.
  • Surgical Error. Surgeons can make mistakes like damaging an internal organ, performing the wrong surgery, operating on the wrong limb, or leaving medical tools inside your body. These errors can be painful and require other surgeries to correct the mistake.
  • Medication Error. If you didn’t receive medication when you were supposed to, were given medication you were allergic to, or given the wrong dose, then you may have had a dangerous reaction or complication.
  • Birth Injury. Mistakes during prenatal care and labor can harm the parent or the baby. These errors can cause lifelong traumatic injuries.

Medical errors can include other instances, too. Our expert medical malpractice lawyers in Harlingen will look at your medical records to identify the source of malpractice.

What Types of Medical Providers Can Be Held Accountable?

When you’ve been hurt when you’re receiving treatment, you may not know exactly where the mistake happened, especially if your care is in the hands of multiple providers. If you’re in the hospital, you may have people rotating in shifts, passing your health information through many hands. When one of those people doesn’t make an update, fails to take note of something, or makes another mistake regarding your care, then you could sustain injuries.

Doctors, nurses, specialists, pharmacists are all capable of being at fault for medical malpractice. If there’s a mistake in your information because the hospital made an error, it can cause injuries and other health complications.

All these medical providers are supposed to meet the standard of care when they’re treating you. That’s to treat you with the level of care that others with the same education and experience would have treated you. If their treatment goes outside of the norm and you’re hurt because of it, then you may have grounds to take legal action.

Your Harlingen, TX medical malpractice lawyer will look into who was in charge of your care and when the mistake occurred. We’ll find the person responsible for your injuries and hold them accountable.
