Pueblo Medical Malpractice Case

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is a legal cause of action that occurs when a medical or health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, deviates from standards in their profession, thereby causing injury to a patient.

The negligence might arise from errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or health management.

Medical malpractice is a specific subset of tort law that deals with professional negligence. In tort law, negligence applies to harm caused by carelessness, not intentional harm. Malpractice is a type of negligence; it is often called “professional negligence”.

 

Types of Medical Malpractice

There are many types of negligence that could be considered medical malpractice. From medical errors to injuries and even death, I’ll help you to determine the best course of action, and help you seek compensation from your medical injuries caused by malpractice.

The following are a few examples of medical malpractice:

Surgical Errors

Each year thousands of patients are injured because of surgical errors. Surgical errors are preventable mistakes that can result in a medical malpractice lawsuit against a hospital, health care provider, or an ambulatory surgical center. 

These injuries can be so severe that some patients will require treatment for life. Thus, physical damage is only a part of the problem. Some patients and their loved ones may also experience emotional trauma due to the event.

If you have suffered an injury that resulted from a surgical error, and are seeking legal advice, contact me immediately for assistance.

Birth Injuries

Unlike a birth defect that is not preventable as it is something a baby is born with, a birth injury is preventable and results from something a physician or staff did or did not do according to best practice. 

This can mean a doctor failed to properly respond to something that arose during delivery or failed to provide the infant with proper prenatal care.

If you or your baby had a birth injury that you believe is due to something the doctor or staff intentionally did, contact me for a free consultation to discuss your options.

Emergency Room Errors

Over 225,000 individuals die each year from injuries due to medical malpractice and almost half of these deaths result from emergency room errors. Emergency room errors take place in a hospital ER. They can be done by a surgeon, doctor, nurse, or other staff and include anything from a medication error to a diagnosis error. 

If you think you or a loved one were harmed because of an emergency room error and need a Pueblo medical malpractice lawyer, contact me now.

Diagnostic Errors

Diagnostic errors happen when a physician fails to correctly diagnose a patient’s condition in a timely manner and the patient suffers because of it. One example of this is when a patient who is having a heart attack is diagnosed as having gas or acid indigestion. 

These, as with all medical malpractice cases are very time-limited, so if you believe you were diagnosed in error and it resulted in injury, contact a medical malpractice attorney immediately. 

If you think you or a loved one were harmed because of an emergency room error and need a Pueblo medical malpractice lawyer, contact me now.

Medication Errors

Medication errors happen when a doctor gives a patient the wrong prescription that causes them more harm than good. When a patient falls victim to such negligent behavior of a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other, they must be held accountable for the damages they caused.

If you were given medication that may have caused you harm in any way, and are seeking an attorney to assist you with a Pueblo medical malpractice case, contact me for assistance.

Never Events

A “never event” is typically a medical error so serious that it should never have happened in the first place. These events are usually overwhelmingly serious, preventable, and clearly identifiable, often indicating a systematic error in the medical facility they take place at. Unfortunately, these events occur quite frequently.

If you feel you were injured or suffered because of a never event in Pueblo or Southern Colorado, contact me. I am a Pueblo medical malpractice attorney who can help you choose your best legal course of action.

Wrongful Death

If a person dies due to medical negligence, their family can file for a wrongful death lawsuit. The lawsuit can be filed against the doctor or the hospital responsible. One thing to note is these case types are strictly governed by laws of the state and are associated with unique procedures.

If you had a loved one taken from you due to medical malpractice, contact me to discuss your case.
