Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Developing new complications after being treated by a doctor, surgeon, or other healthcare professional for an injury or illness is devastating. Many people whose health declines after receiving treatments may assume that they’re victims of medical malpractice.

While not every case of worsening health after treatment is medical malpractice, the scope of such negligence is vast and can include a variety of mistakes and oversights, such as:

  • Misdiagnosis—Prompt identification and treatment of illnesses, diseases, and complications is extremely important. When healthcare professionals make the wrong diagnosis, patients may receive ineffective or even dangerous care while their true underlying conditions worsen.
  • Failure to treat—Sometimes doctors don’t give patients the care and attention they deserve, even when they properly diagnose their conditions. That can result in patients receiving care that isn’t adequate to treat their illnesses or injuries.
  • Surgical errors—Surgery always carries inherent risks, but surgeons and their support teams are supposed to take every precaution to protect patient safety. Surgical errors can include unnecessary procedures, operating on the wrong body part, improper administration of anesthesia, using non-sterile equipment, leaving items inside patients’ bodies, and more.
  • Birth injuries—The birth of a child is supposed to be a joyous occasion for families, but sometimes it turns into heartbreak when medical professionals are negligent. Birth injuries can result when doctors don’t give mothers adequate prenatal care or when they cause harm to babies and mothers during and after delivery.

Those are just several examples of medical malpractice. If you or someone you love was harmed by a medical professional, we want to hear from you. Call the Oklahoma City medical malpractice attorneys at Parrish DeVaughn today for a free consultation.
