All forms of medical malpractice can be truly devastating and cause you some serious trauma. To be sure about whether or not you have a medical malpractice claim, you first have to figure out what exactly happened to you and what category your accident/incident falls under. There are several types of medical malpractice injuries that we can help you recover compensation for.

Types of Medical Malpractice Injuries | Misdiagnosis
You may have a claim if your doctor either did not assess you properly to get your condition treated or they diagnosed you with the wrong condition, causing you harm with unneeded treatment (as well as a lack of treatment for what was really ailing you).
Types of Medical Malpractice Injuries | Failure to Treat
This sounds like an act malicious intent, but sometimes your doctor just does not tell you about a treatment that you should have been getting which leads to a worsened condition, not necessarily to hurt you but because they either did not know or they forgot.
Types of Medical Malpractice Injuries | Surgical Errors
These injuries can be severe and life-changing. You might have gotten the wrong procedure done, had damage to your body during surgery, gotten the wrong dose of anesthesia, etc.
Types of Medical Malpractice Injuries | Product Liability
This mostly pertains to the equipment used on you during a medical procedure that caused you injury, and this negligent party is not necessarily your doctor, but maybe is the company that owns the product.
All of these injuries are totally preventable and can cause a lot of grief for you and your family. When you meet with an attorney, you should explain every detail about your case so that you and your attorney can talk about how to proceed. Contact our office to schedule a free consultation.
