Medical Malpractice Cases
Medical malpractice is a specific subcategory of personal injury involving medical treatment that falls below the standard of care accepted by the medical field. A wide variety of medical professionals may be held responsible in medical malpractice cases—hospitals, surgeons, nurses, general practitioners, chiropractors, podiatrists, psychiatrists, nursing homes, medical labs, dentists, and the list goes on.
There are many different types of medical malpractice cases, ranging from failure to diagnose breast cancer or colon cancer to surgical errors – such as operating on the wrong limb or performing surgery on the wrong patient. When a medical practitioner fails to respond in an emergency, the patient may be harmed or die from lack of immediate and proper treatment.
There are also medication errors that harm patients—prescribing the wrong medication, the wrong dosage, or getting the wrong prescription filled incorrectly. When nurses or physicians in nursing homes fail to properly oversee care, pressure ulcers, dehydration, malnutrition, and other complications can arise that harm the elderly.
While the scope of medical malpractice is vast, some of the more common medical malpractice cases our lawyers at Tobler Law have handled include birth injury, cerebral palsy, cancer, nursing home abuse, prescription, and gastric bypass cases.
