What are some examples of medical malpractice?
There are many examples of medical malpractice, too numerous to mention here. Some of these include failure to properly diagnose a condition that results in serious injury as a result of the failure to diagnose. Sometimes it involves improperly diagnosing a condition and taking a course of treatment that adds to the injury. It can also include doing a procedure that’s not medically indicated, resulting in further injury. It can also include doing a procedure incorrectly. Sometimes anesthesiologists improperly administer anesthesia. That’s a medical malpractice claim. Sometimes doctors fail to adequately monitor the progress of a patient once they’ve diagnosed a condition, or they’ve failed to treat it as soon as possible, resulting in further injury to the plaintiff. If you have a question as to whether or not medical malpractice occurred, I suggest you contact an attorney with experience in this area, so that it can be investigated and looked at. Sometimes there’s a claim. Sometimes there’s not.
