Statistics reveal that over 1 million individuals in the United States are impacted each year due to medical malpractice. These mistakes can occur among anesthesiologists, doctors, nurses, residents, technicians, and most other professional medical workers. These medical mistakes can also occur in a variety of settings ranging from doctor’s offices to operating rooms. Unfortunately, a large number of patients are never made aware that their injuries are the result of medical error until thorough investigations are performed. The reasons for these medical errors are just as varied as the types of resulting injuries and can include failure to properly monitor patients and incorrectly prescribed medications. If you or someone you know was impacted by medical malpractice, do not hesitate to obtain the assistance of our experienced medical malpractice attorneys.

Some of the ways in which medical professionals can fall below this standard include when the worker is careless, fails to follow standardized rules, or lacks adequate skill. Sometimes, when these mistakes occur, not just the medical professional but also the health care company for which he or she works can be held accountable. These errors can occur during any phase of the care process including diagnosis of medical condition, surgery, other types of treatment, and prescription of medications.
