Medical malpractice, unfortunately, is an all-too-often occurrence. It is also one of the
top leading causes of death in our country. Medical malpractice is a broad
term for any wrongdoing that is done on a patient by a health care professional.
The wrongdoing may be committed by anyone who works in health care, including
doctors, surgeons, nurses, orderlies, and even nursing assistants.
How Liability Is Determined in Malpractice
What you may not realize is that medical malpractice can occur even without
direct action. Take a case of nursing home abuse, where the wrongdoer
fully intends to do either emotional or physical harm to the victim. That
person meant to cause harm. In cases of malpractice, it may be done purely
by the lack of attention, error, and even inaction.
These are some of the most common mistakes that occur:
- X-ray errors
- Medication errors
- Pharmaceutical error
- Surgical error
- Inability to treat
While these are only some of the more common scenarios, each and every
case will have its set of circumstances. We urge anyone who has become
injured from an unsteady surgeon’s hand, had their condition worsened
after receiving the wrong treatment, or were not diagnosed properly because
of a misread X-ray, to call a San Antonio medical malpractice attorney
as quickly as possible.
