Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can occur in any context where a recognized healthcare provider is involved in the treatment of a patient. It is not a simple error but a breach of an accepted standard of care that goes beyond a simple mistake into the realm of negligence.

The following are some of the main contexts in which medical malpractice commonly occurs.

Diagnosis Errors

Various diagnosis errors occur and often have serious and sometimes lethal consequences. The most common of these errors include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Missed diagnosis

When a misdiagnosis occurs, the result can be deadly. With a misdiagnosis typically comes an erroneous course of treatment that may not only ignore the true disease but also cause injury.

Note that not all misdiagnosis errors are considered medical malpractice. Medical malpractice errors are those mistakes that can be classified as a breach of an acceptable standard of medical care.

Childbirth Errors

Healthcare providers delivering babies must adhere to a high standard of care. Their mistakes can lead to lifelong debilitation for a newborn or even death. Common actions of medical malpractice during childbirth include:

  • Exerting too much force with forceps or vacuum
  • Failure to properly monitor fetal stress
  • C-section errors

Various healthcare providers may be liable for childbirth errors, including doctors, nurses, physician’s assistants, technicians, and the institution where the birth occurred.

Failure to Treat

Healthcare professionals have the duty to provide quality care for their patients. However, some patients suffer injuries or exacerbated conditions due to a failure to treat on the part of the professional attending them. A claim of failure to treat might go hand in hand with a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose malpractice error.

Surgical Errors

Surgical errors are not uncommon and often lead to pain and losses. Sometimes, death is the result. Some of the most common surgical errors we have seen over the years include:

  • Wrong-site operations
  • Leaving a foreign object inside a patient
  • Nerve damage
  • Damage to the arteries and veins
  • Operating while exhausted
  • Improper training and supervision

Other medical malpractice errors that occur during surgery include improper administration of anesthesia, alcohol or drug use, and poor communication between the surgeon and their team.

Compensation for Your Losses

As an injury victim, you may have access to compensation for your financial and non-monetary losses. Our Nantucket medical malpractice lawyers can help you get your medical bills and home care expenses compensated. They can also demand wage replacement for lost income.

In addition, you may have access to non-financial damages for losses that wreak havoc on your emotional and psychological well-being. Also known as non-economic damages, non-monetary losses include pain and suffering and loss of companionship.
