Not all mistakes by healthcare professionals are examples of medical malpractice. In order for a valid case to be established, your attorney must first determine if a doctor, surgeon, or other medical practitioner breached what is called the “standard of care.” The standard of care involves “self-evident” practices—such as catching common diseases, properly reading charts, and administering correct dosages—and whether or not a doctor has failed to adhere to these self-evident practices.
Common examples of medical malpractice, when coupled with a breach of the standard of care, include:
- Misdiagnoses resulting in injury, worsened condition, or death
- Incorrect surgical site, or surgery on the wrong patient
- Surgical errors, including removal of wrong organ or left-behind instrument
- Failure to diagnose, including stroke, heart attack, appendicitis, and more
- Neurosurgery, craniotomy, or tumor removal errors
- Medication errors, including wrong dosage, wrong type, and incorrect method
- Brain injuries resulting from medical practitioners’ mistakes
- Birth injuries or complications caused by healthcare professionals
- Incorrect or late cancer diagnoses/cancer diagnoses issues
- Plastic surgery errors that result in injury or death
These are just some examples of medical malpractice. If you believe a health care professional’s negligence caused you or your loved one’s injuries, don’t delay in seeking the assistance of a Mississippi medical malpractice attorney.How Kilpatrick & Philley, Attorneys at Law can Help
