Types of Medical Malpractice

Failure to Diagnose

Failure to diagnose is a medical malpractice cause of action that occurs when a medical professional fails to timely discover a patient’s illness or misdiagnoses the illness. This type of error can lead to further pain and suffering or may prove fatal.

Improper Treatment

Improper treatment occurs when a medical provider unnecessarily provides dangerous, outdated, unapproved, or risky treatments to a patient. Another example of improper treatment is when a medical provider treats a patient with an appropriate treatment but administers it in an inappropriate method.

Hospital Malpractice

It may be possible to sue the hospital where the injury that occurred due to medical malpractice took place. In order to have a cause of action and effectively sue a hospital for medical malpractice, the medical or health care professional that caused the injury must be an employee of the hospital, or the patient must have relied upon the hospital for the medical care they needed. A knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney can determine whether or not a hospital is a proper defendant in a medical malpractice case.

Birth Injury

Birth injuries occur when a medical professional fails to provide appropriate care or treatment to a mother or the baby during pregnancy or delivery. Birth injuries can result in fractures, paralysis, nerve damage, developmental disorders and cerebral palsy.

Surgical Errors

Surgical errors are perhaps the most obvious type of medical malpractice. When a doctor removes the wrong body part, leaves a sponge in a patient, or operates on the wrong patient entirely, a surgical error has occurred.

Improper medication or dosage

This type of medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other health care professional prescribes the wrong medication or prescribes the correct medication but the incorrect dosage amount.
