Why does medical malpractice happen?
Childbirth injuries, such as cerebral palsy in newborns, may be related to a mistake by the doctor or midwife. In other cases, an adult patient may suffer a brain injury as a result of a surgical mistake; a doctor may cause a LASIK error; the hospital administrators may be at fault for failing to hire an adequately trained staff member. (Please see our hospital liability page for more information.)
The following is a partial list of common types of medical malpractice cases:
- Failure to diagnose conditions such as cancer or a possible cardiac problem
- Mistakes made during surgery
- Mistakes made in the emergency room
- Anesthesia errors
- Errors leading to a wrongful death
Even when medical professionals are responsible for your injuries, insurance companies may try to blame you, low-ball a settlement or deny a claim altogether.
