What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical Malpractice claims can arise from all different situations. They don’t always directly involve the doctor. Any number of people can be responsible for medical malpractice cases – the nurse, the intern, the physicians assistant, or anyone from the hospital staff. Have you or a love one ever experienced malpractice such as…

  • failure to diagnose an illness
  • anesthesia errors
  • failure to prevent infection
  • leaving a medical device implanted after surgery
  • surgery without informed consent
  • certain birth injuries and cerebral palsy
  • late diagnosis resulting in a diminished chance of survival
  • misdiagnosis of a condition

During the course of medical treatment, physicians are trusted to make correct decisions, and often these split second decisions are the difference between successful treatment and devastating injuries. When a medical provider fails to give their full time and attention to the person they are treating, and the patient suffers a devastating injury, the responsibility for those injuries should not fall on the patient and their family.

In addition to medical mistakes made by the main treating doctor, catastrophic injuries could also be caused by the anesthesia errors, surgical mistakes, medication prescription errors or hospital misconduct.

Thousands of preventable mistakes occur each year. Determining whether a medical treatment error could have been prevented requires experienced  Virginia medical malpractice attorneys and experts to review the circumstances surrounding the treatment. While every medical mistake does not result in a medical malpractice lawsuit, you can obtain a free consultation and legal medical malpractice claim evaluation to determine if you or your family may be entitled to financial compensation and settlement benefits.
