What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the term "medical malpractice?" While many people think about a simple diagnosis error, this type of negligence can actually take on many forms.
Do you have reason to believe that you have been the victim of medical malpractice? If you find yourself in this position, it's important to learn more about the ins and outs of medical malpractice, including the many forms. Consider the following:
-- Diagnosis errors. Simply put, this is when a doctor fails to properly diagnose a serious condition, such as heart attack, stroke or cancer.
-- Surgical errors. Many things can go wrong during surgery, such as a tool being left inside the patient's body.
-- Birth injuries. Was your child injured during labor or at birth? Was this the result of negligence? A birth injury caused by a medical professional is a big deal.
