Medical Malpractice Takes Many Forms

Doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists and other medical providers must be highly educated and go through extensive training to provide the care that patients need, and for this reason, we place our trust in medical professionals. What happens, though, when a hospital or medical provider fails a patient, causing harm instead of healing?

We have all heard stories of doctors operating on the wrong part of a patient's body. Thankfully, these kinds of cases are extremely rare. But what about prescribing a drug that a patient is allergic to? Or failing to diagnose a debilitating or fatal condition that could have been treated if caught early? Or failing to recognize a pregnancy condition that leads to birth injuries? In some cases, medical malpractice leads to a wrongful death claim against the doctor or hospital.

Medical malpractice can also stem from something as trivial as a medical professional's misrepresenting his or her credentials; yet even this can have far-reaching and serious consequences for patients.
