Medical professionals are expected to treat each of their patients with a certain standard of care. If a doctor, nurse, or another medical professional makes a mistake or acts negligently, the consequences could be extremely damaging, if not deadly. Unfortunately, cases of medical malpractice happen all too often, and they can have lasting consequences.
If you or someone you love was harmed by a careless medical professional, you have a right to seek justice and compensation from the liable party. Medical negligence can be emotionally traumatizing, physically painful, and costly. Whether your doctor failed to diagnose you, provided the wrong treatment, or made a clerical mistake, you have a right to speak up if you were harmed.

Types of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice includes a wide variety of medical and clerical mistakes, any of which can ultimately harm the patient and cause lasting damage. Hospitals could be liable for any of the mistakes their workers make, though medical supply companies, medical parts manufacturers, and doctors might also be found liable.
Common types of medical malpractice cases include:
- Birth Injuries
- Delayed Treatment
- Emergency Room Mistakes
- Medical Record Mistakes
- Medication Errors
- Poor Sanitation
- Surgical Errors
- Surgical/Medical Equipment Errors
Depending on the type of injury you sustain, medical malpractice could result in serious, lasting damage. When dealing with delayed treatment or misdiagnoses, for example, the patient could continue to worsen and might sustain lasting or permanent damage as a result.
