Medical Errors Considered as Medical Malpractice

After leaving a doctor’s office or hospital where you didn’t receive the care that you were owed, you might be wondering if you have a medical malpractice claim against the negligent practitioner who treated you. Medical errors can be the key signs that what you went through is considered medical malpractice and that you need a lawyer to help you stand up for your rights.

It’s important to note that simply being upset with your care does not constitute as med mal. There needs to be a negligent action that breaches the medical worker’s duty of care. That breach needs to be the direct cause of your injuries and damages as well. If none of these elements are present, and you’re just not happy with your doctor’s treatment, but you still were properly cared for, then you most likely don’t have a claim.

Here are the medical errors that you could have experienced under the care of a physician that left you with injuries and constitute hiring a med mal attorney:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Missed Diagnosis
  • Infections
  • Wrong Medication
  • Failure to Read Chart
  • Misreading Lab or Test Results
  • Wrong Surgery Site
  • Leaving Surgical Tools in the Body
  • Unnecessary Surgery
  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Birth Injuries
  • Wrong Dosage and Administration of Medication

While some of these mistakes might cause you mild harm, others could cause permanent damage to your body and health. They could even affect the rest of your life and cause you to need continual medical treatment in the future or use medical devices.

Having an experienced Laredo, TX medical malpractice attorney on your side will help you determine whether or not what you experienced is considered med mal.
