Different Kinds of Medical Malpractice | Misdiagnosis
This is two-fold. Your doctor could check you and claim that you are fine, and free to go home while missing an issue that needs treating, or they could determine you have the wrong condition. Both of those two scenarios can be completely devastating. You may go without life-saving medicine, or you may be taking medicine that you do not need which may have unwanted side-effects.
Another example would be a delayed diagnosis, in which you may have found out what was wrong, but because your doctor missed it initially, you have unnecessarily suffered because of it.
Different Kinds of Medical Malpractice | Surgical Errors
While this is not as common, it is completely devastating. Your surgery may have been performed incorrectly leaving internal damages. You may have gotten infection from dirty equipment. Your anesthesia might have caused damage. And most horrifying, you may have had the wrong surgery performed on you. Some people have even had the terrible misfortune of being wrongfully amputated. We will fight hard to win your case.
Different Kinds of Medical Malpractice | Failure to Treat
You most likely know what your condition is, and you may have realized that you are not getting any healthier despite following your doctor’s orders. When your doctor gives you inadequate treatment, you may have a claim.
Different Kinds of Medical Malpractice | Product Liability
While the liable party in this instance might not be your doctor, this is still medical malpractice. We would be going after the manufacturer of the product that caused you injury.
If none of these relate to you, that does not necessarily mean that you do not have a medical malpractice claim. Again, to be sure, you should sit down with our Newhall medical malpractice attorneys and see how we can help you. Contact our office for a free consultation.
