Medical Malpractice Attorney in Coral Springs
About Medical Malpractice, Birth Injuries & Wrongful Death
A person can sustain injuries in a variety of ways, but rarely do we think
that we will suffer injuries as we are being treated for them. Unfortunately,
this is exactly what occurs in cases relating to medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice is defined as an act of professional negligence by
a health care provider that causes injury, illness or
death to the patient. This can include medical,
medication, surgical and emergency room errors. These types of mistakes are often
devastating, and many victims are afraid to come forward about these wrong
doings for many reasons.
Several examples of medical malpractice include
birth injury, misdiagnosis and surgical mistakes. With birth injuries, a doctor's
mistake or the premature delivery of a child can lead to the serious birth
injury known as Cerebral Palsy. Furthermore, a child with this injury
will need constant care and supervision nearly their whole life, costing
families hundreds of thousands or even possibly millions of dollars. With
cases of misdiagnosis, an individual may be wrongly diagnosed or not diagnosed
at all when they are showing clear signs of a deadly or dangerous illness
or injury. When a doctor fails to give a correct diagnosis and the patient's
symptoms worsen, causing further harm or wrongful death, the doctor may
be held responsible for their failure to simply do their job.
