Examples of Medical Malpractice
From your general practitioner's office to a pharmacy to a hospital to your own home, medical malpractice can occur in any environment in which a healthcare service is provided. Medical malpractice lawsuits often stem from circumstances including:
- Birth injuries, such as those that lead to cerebral palsy and Erb's palsy
- Surgical errors
- Nursing home abuse
- Delay in diagnosis or failure to diagnose
- Anesthesia errors
- Postoperative infections
- Medication errors
Medical negligence is not limited to these examples. If you have reason to believe that you or a family member suffered harm due to the carelessness of a healthcare provider, our experienced medical malpractice attorneys can review your unique circumstances and advise you on your legal options.
