The Common Errors Committed by Doctors and Hospitals

Medical Malpractice AttorneyThere are approximately 1.3 million cases of medical malpractice reported in the United States each year. Just like everyone else, medical professionals are capable of negligence or incompetence. However, a negligent or incompetent action by a healthcare professional can have significant implications or even result in the death of the victim.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of medical malpractice, you should immediately contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney in New York because you may be entitled to money damages for your injuries.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Just because a doctor has made a mistake in the type of medical care or treatment he or she has provided, it does not mean that they have committed medical malpractice. In order for an act to amount to medical malpractice, the healthcare professional must have been negligent in some way. In other words, they must have failed to act in a reasonably skillful or competent manner that ultimately harmed the patient.

Some of the common types of errors that healthcare professionals can engage in that may ultimately amount to medical malpractice include:

  • Negligence in providing proper prenatal care (such as failing to diagnose a medical condition of the mother or failing to identify birth defects)
  • Negligence in providing proper care during child birth (such as, failing to anticipate birth complications or failing to respond to signs of fetal distress)
  • Failure to properly providing anesthesia to patients (such as, giving too much anesthesia or failing to monitor vital signs)
  • Surgical errors or any negligent actions during an operation (such as operating on the wrong part of the body or leaving an object in the patient)

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!!
