Each patient is different and each medical scenario is different. As a result, medical malpractice cases can arise from any situation involving medical care. However, some scenarios more commonly result in medical malpractice claims, such as,
- Failure to diagnose a heart attack, stroke, or pulmonary embolism
- Delayed diagnosis of a terminal illness
- Improper prescription of medication
- Anesthesia errors
- Birth errors
Again, each patient is different, and countless factors play into each case. A qualified lawyer can help you determine if you or your loved one was victimized by medical malpractice.
