Every day, we place a tremendous level of trust and accountability on our medical and health care professionals. We place our lives in their hands. Despite this high level of trust, mistakes and acts of negligence do occur. These events can be devastating and leave patients with life altering conditions affecting them and their families in profound ways. A common thread in most medical malpractice lawsuits is negligence – failure to act with the reasonable care expected of a medical professional. Your doctor may very well be highly skilled and trusted, however, he or she is only human – mistakes happen. The medical and health care landscape provides for many fields and areas of speciality, such as pharmacological, ophthalmology, dentistry, pediatrics, ear nose and throat, plastic surgery, immunologist, physiotherapist, lab technicians, to name a few. Mistakes happen in every facet and area of health care.
Some of the most common medical malpractice areas are the following;
Birth Injuries/Obstetric Malpractice
Laser Eye injuries
Cosmetic procedure negligence
Pre-natal testing errors (wrongful birth)
Misdiagnosis, Failure to Re-diagnose or Delayed Diagnosis
