Understanding the Various Forms of Medical Malpractice

If a healthcare provider's negligent actions or inactions cause a patient to suffer a disease or injury, then that healthcare provider may be guilty of medical malpractice. In fact, that provider may still be liable even if a patient suffers from an existing condition because the provider's negligence may cause the condition to worsen. The most common instances of medical mistakes are as follows.
  • Failure to promptly and correctly treat medical emergencies
  • Failure to properly diagnose and treat serious medical conditions (incorrect reading of X-rays and tests)
  • Surgical mistakes such as tools left inside of a patient or the slip of a knife
  • Prescription medication or treatment errors
  • Diagnosis delays
  • Injuries occurring during birth
  • Failure to advise a patient of diagnosis
  • Lack of informed consent
  • Abandonment or the simple stoppage of treatment to a patient
