Medical Errors Put Patients’ Health at Risk

A medical provider’s negligence can result in irreparable harm. Your Mesa, AZ medical malpractice lawyer will look at your case to find out where the error occurred. Some common forms of negligence include:

  • Failure to Diagnose/Misdiagnosis. When you’re exhibiting symptoms or have tests that show signs of a certain condition, your doctor may not recognize these symptoms or think they’re indicating another health problem. This can prolong treating your condition and you may start treatment for a condition you don’t have.
  • Surgical Error. These errors can occur during the procedure and during pre-op and post-op. Mistakes that occur during the procedure can include wrong-site surgery, the patient undergoes the wrong procedure, tools are left inside the surgical site, or the surgeon performs an unnecessary procedure. Patients also need instruction and care before and after the surgery to make sure they’re okay. If they don’t receive this care, they could have issues like infection or other side effects.
  • Medication Error. You may need medication as part of your treatment. If the person administering the medication is negligent, they may give you the wrong medication, incorrect dosage, or poor record keeping could result in a missed dose or double dose.
  • Defective Medical Devices. If a medical device fails to work, you could be injured or your life could be put in danger. In this case, the manufacturing company that made the device may be held liable for your injuries.
  • Birth Injuries. When a medical error occurs during delivery, the baby can sustain injuries that could cause some complications but will eventually heal, or cause permanent complications. Our lawyers will fight for you and your child to get justice.
