There are many conditions and injuries which can occur as a result of medical malpractice.

If you have suffered from a life-altering medical injury as a result of negligence, it is time to get in touch with our skilled personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers and at Hyatt & Weber Injury Law.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice
Since there are many facets of healthcare, there are a lot of ways in which medical malpractice can occur. The next time you receive medical care, be on the lookout for various potential cases:
- Misdiagnosis: Though some conditions can be difficult to diagnose, most are well documented. If your doctor fails to diagnose a well-known condition in a timely manner, you may have grounds for a medical lawsuit.
- Emergency Room Errors: It can be difficult for some medical professionals to handle the stress of working long shifts in the emergency room. While mistakes are bound to occur, not all of them are a result of negligence.
- Surgical Errors: You’ve probably heard horror stories of surgeons accidentally amputating the wrong leg or wrongful death. This and other avoidable surgical errors are absolutely grounds for a lawsuit.
- Medication Errors: Many patients rely on a precise dosage of particular medication in order to stay healthy. Errors in prescribing or filling prescriptions can cause serious illness or wrongful death.
