Common Examples of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can occur in a variety of forms and happens much more often than anyone realizes. The following are among the most common instances of medical malpractice:

  • Anesthesia Errors: With an anesthesia error, the patient receives the incorrect amount of anesthesia. This can be devastating in more ways than one. Too little, and a patient could regain consciousness during surgery. Too much anesthesia, and the patient could potentially die.
  • ER Errors: While the emergency room is certainly a hectic environment, medical professionals are expected to avoid mistakes like misreading charts or failing to diagnose serious problems.
  • Hospital Malpractice: The hospital itself can cause medical malpractice by failing to hire qualified workers with the proper certifications and experience.
  • Medical Device Errors: Medical device errors can happen for one of two reasons. Either the device itself can be faulty, which would bring up a case against the manufacturer, or the medical practitioner could use it improperly. The latter could lead to a medical malpractice lawsuit being filed against the practitioner and possibly the hospital.

Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

If you were injured due to medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation. While the details surrounding your injury are essential to whether a case can be made, always remember that you have rights if you’ve suffered from situations like misdiagnosis, medical errors, and general mistreatment by medical staff.

If you’re considering filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in Arizona, there are a few factors to keep in mind. For example, you must prove that your health care provider didn’t deliver the degree of care that is reasonably expected of them. You must also prove that this failure was the direct cause of your injury. In these situations, having an experienced and knowledgeable Phoenix, AZ, medical malpractice lawyer on your side can make all the difference.

Medical Malpractice FAQs

There are three kinds of damages that can possibly be collected. The first is general damages, which could include compensation for pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and loss of enjoyment of life, among others. The second is special damages. These include compensation for medical costs and lost income. Finally, there are punitive damages, which are meant to punish the medical practitioners responsible for your injuries. This form of compensation is typically only awarded when a healthcare professional deliberately or knowingly harms a patient.

The answer here depends on the circumstance. If the medical practitioner fails to inform you of the risk, or if they informed you the procedure would put you at risk, but the injury was caused by unrelated malpractice, such as an anesthesia error, then you may still have a case.

However, if you signed a consent form after being informed of the risks you would be taking in your procedure, the medical professionals and facility will likely not be liable for any injuries you were warned about.

In most cases, the hospital isn’t legally responsible for a doctor’s malpractice. You may only be able to do this if the hospital hired someone who isn’t qualified for their position.

Navigating a lawsuit is tough enough for a person in perfect health. Suffering physically or emotionally can make it seemingly impossible to stand up to the doctor’s or hospital’s team of lawyers challenging your suit. That’s why you need an experienced Phoenix, AZ, medical malpractice lawyer in your corner fighting for your rights.
