Common Causes of Medical Malpractice
Not every undesirable medical result was caused by malpractice, but when physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers cause injury because of actions that fall below the accepted standard of professional conduct, those medical professionals may be held liable for the injuries and damage caused by those errors. Some causes of medical malpractice injuries include:
- Surgical errors
- Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose a life-threatening condition or disease
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Unreasonable delays in medical treatment
- Providing incorrect or insufficient treatment for a condition
- Failure to prevent or treat infections or disease
- Neglect or abuse
- Mistakes during labor or delivery
The worst medical malpractice cases can result in catastrophic or fatal errors for their victims. At Holmes & Moore, we also represent the families of medical malpractice victims in wrongful death claims.
