Thousand Oaks Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Examples of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a result of a medical professional deviating from the accepted standard of patient care in his particular field of medicine. When a failure to provide the expected standard of care takes place that causes injury or illness to a patient, the medical professional can be held financially liable for the victim's damages. If you or a family member has been harmed by some form of medical malpractice, it is crucial that you contact a Thousand Oaks personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Malpractice cases typically have a statute of limitations regarding the amount of time in which you are able to take legal action, so it is recommended that you seek legal help as early as possible.

There are many bad results in medicine that cannot be attributed to negligence on the part of a doctor or other medical professional. Some patients simply don't respond to certain treatments, and others may actually suffer injury as a result of a specific treatment. However, there are a large number of instances of patient illness or injury that are directly brought about by medical malpractice. Examples of this malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis of a disease, or failure to diagnose a disease
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Misinterpretation of laboratory results, or mistakes on the part of laboratory staff
  • Incorrect prescription (wrong medication or wrong dosage)
  • Failing to provide medical care in a timely fashion
  • Failure to take proper tests
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Hospital or facility errors
