If The Doctor Or Hospital Injured You, You Need An Experienced Medical  Malpractice Lawyer

Medical malpractice is a violation of trust. When a person is ill, they are at their most vulnerable. They become deeply involved with a medical system that can let them down with serious and long-lasting consequences and may need the services of a Medical Malpractice Lawyer.

Childbirth injuries are probably the most devastating, since a child’s life can be so badly damaged even before birth. There are a number of problems that can happen during the birth if the physician or obstetrician is negligent.

Prenatal care can be seriously compromised by negligent medical treatment. Birth defects can be overlooked. A mother’s life can be threatened if an ectopic pregnancy is not diagnosed. Rh incompatibility can result in a jaundiced, lethargic baby with poor muscle tone. Gestational diabetes or hypoglycemia can go undiagnosed even though many pregnant women experience these problems. The baby can be born with a disease that the mother should have been treated for.

Many of the most serious cases of medical malpractice occur during birth. Uncontrolled bleeding can have serious consequences for the mother. Untreated high blood pressure could result in the mother having a seizure or stroke. The baby’s oxygen intake must be closely monitored both before and after delivery or permanent injury can result.

Another common source of medical malpractice is a result of medication errors. The wrong medication can be given or a needed medication can be overlooked. The wrong dosage of the right medication can be administered or prescribed. In a hospital setting, the patient might be hooked up to the wrong IV medication. An IV pump could have a faulty valve, sending a large dose of medication to the patient in a very short period of time. In nursing homes, inexperienced aides might not recognize that a diabetic resident was experiencing blood sugar problems and not seek medical assistance.
