In a perfect world, you would never have to visit with a doctor. Instead, you would remain 100 percent healthy at all times.
Unfortunately, there are situations in which you have no choice but to consult with a medical professional. Adding to this is the fact that you may face a serious illness or injury at some point in the future.
Although you expect nothing but the best from your medical team, this doesn't always happen. There are times when a doctor or another type of medical professional acts in a negligent manner, thus leading to a more challenging situation.
Some of the most common types of medical malpractice include:
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- The used of a defective medical device
- Birth injuries
- Anesthesia errors
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Prescription medication errors
- Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis
- Surgical mistakes
