We trust doctors, nurses and other medical staff with our health, and sometimes our lives. Healthcare professionals bear a burden to be precise and deliberate in their decisions and actions. When they fail, it can mean lasting consequences for their patients’ lives.
Medical malpractice claims may arise from a variety of negligent actions including:
- Administering the wrong medication
- Leaving surgical instruments inside the body
- Negligence while performing surgery
- Failure to perform clinical procedures properly
- Failure to properly diagnose or treat a condition
- Failure to order or promptly review necessary tests
- Negligence causing injury or death during administration of anesthesia
- Failure to obtain informed consent from the patient
- Failure to inform a patient of treatment options
