What are the Common Types of Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence comes in many forms, with some being more dangerous than others. No matter how dangerous your situation was, medical negligence is never okay. Doctors and medical professionals are people who are there to protect you and help you live a healthy life. If they can’t do that then who can? This is where the mental and emotional turmoil of medical negligence can play a large role in the damage that is done. No matter how small the harm is physical, there will always be that mental scar. This is just a small peek into the damage; however, some situations can be much more gruesome and horrifying. If you or a loved one have been a victim of medical negligence, know that you are not alone and that there are people who want to help you. Here at Cameron Law Group, we believe every victim of medical negligence deserves a chance at justice. That’s why we are here to represent you and your case. All you have to do is hop on a call with us and tell us your story. This will help us determine how actionable your case is and what kind of justice we can expect if you choose to pursue it.

Errors Committed During Surgery

A frightening kind of medical negligence is an error during surgery. These types of errors can be but are not limited to botched surgeries, a wrongfully placed incision, an item left inside the body, infection, and death. Any which way an error committed in surgery goes, it does not end up well for the patient. This is a serious offense and can significantly alter the patient’s life. Not only is this physically and mentally harmful, but it also could result in extremely high medical bills for the patient affected. In this situation getting justice can be equal parts important for closure and healing as it is for costs.

Incorrect Prescriptions

Failing to prescribe the correct prescription can result in unexpected side effects, further illnesses, and medical complications. While sometimes this may be no big deal and a mistake that can be brushed under the rug, other times it can be the difference of life or death. Whether you need the prescription to live or the wrong prescription is fatal for you to take, this kind of issue can become severe real quick.

Failure to Diagnose

Failure to diagnose can go two ways; the doctor either did not diagnose you in the correct time frame, or the doctor did not diagnose you for the correct illness. Either way, failure to diagnose can be detrimental to a patient’s health. Some conditions require fast action to prevent further damage, making this situation fatal for some. This also rings true for those who are diagnosed with the wrong illness and are being incorrectly treated. Not only do most forms of aggressive treatment have side effects, but can also interfere with other conditions and the patient’s general health. If you or a loved one has become a victim of a failure to diagnose, be sure to seek justice at Cameron Law Group.

Conducting Childbirth Incorrectly

The entire process of being pregnant is stressful enough, adding the process of childbirth on top of it is enough for new mothers to be overcome with worry. However, a doctor’s role during childbirth is to assist with the delivery and make the mother feel at ease. While this is usually the case, there are instances where the childbirth does not go successfully. This may not always end up being detrimental; although, there are some instances where injury can occur. In these situations, we recommend seeking justice through an injury attorney. Childbirth should be a beautiful moment with the mother and the baby both being safe afterward. Any kind of incorrect methods resulting in injury should be addressed and compensated for.
