How Do You Know If Medical Malpractice Occurred?

If you’re thinking about taking legal action regarding your medical treatment, you should know that having a negative experience when you’re receiving care does not necessarily mean that malpractice occurred. Being unhappy with your treatment or your condition worsening aren’t enough to have a valid claim.

Our lawyers know the typical kinds of medical errors that can happen. If you experienced one of these mistakes or your situation was similar, then you may have grounds for a claim.

  • Misdiagnosis/Failure to Diagnose. If you are exhibiting symptoms or had tests that indicate a certain issue, but your doctor either diagnosed you with the wrong problem or didn’t arrive at a diagnosis, then your condition could have progressed when you could have been treating it. If other doctors would have arrived at the correct diagnosis with the same information, then you could hold them accountable.
  • Emergency Room Errors. Providers working in an emergency room need to identify when you’re showing symptoms of a condition that needs immediate treatment. If they miss these symptoms, then you could sustain serious injuries.
  • Surgery Errors. When you’re undergoing a surgical procedure, a negligent surgeon could make a mistake that results in further injury and could require other surgeries. A surgeon could do the wrong procedure, perform on the wrong patient or limb, or the surgery could have been unnecessary. Additional issues can include anesthesiology errors or lack of post-op care.
  • Medicine Errors. A negligent hospital may have given you incorrect medications which can interact with other medications or conditions you have. You may also suffer an allergic reaction. There’s also the situation where they administer the wrong dosage.
  • Medical Device Malfunction. A medical device may give you necessary information about your health or help your body function. If a medical device malfunctions because it’s faulty, then you may have suffered serious injuries.

These are a handful of possible instances of medical malpractice. If you’re unsure of what happened to you, we can review the incident. Your Tucson, AZ medical malpractice lawyer will help determine if you can proceed and seek compensation.
