Helping You Recover From A Health Care Professional’s Negligence
What Causes Medical Malpractice?
Going to the doctor or the hospital can be a daunting experience in itself. Medical errors complicate an already tenuous situation, further damaging a patient’s health.
Common types of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical errors
- Physician and nurse fatigue
- Miscommunications among medical professionals
- Unsterilized medical tools
- Stroke injuries and misdiagnosis
- Mistakes in medications prescribed or administered to patients
- Incorrect diagnosis or the failure to diagnose
- Birth injury
- Anesthesia errors
- Emergency room errors
It is an unfortunate reality that many medical facilities, including urgent care facilities and hospitals, are understaffed and require staff members, doctors and nurses to work long hours with few breaks. This can cause medical professionals to rush through examinations and surgical procedures, as well as skip protocol and make mistakes because they are fatigued.
Righting The Wrong Through Effective Legal Representation
A medical malpractice claim in Michigan may be filed for an individual who has suffered illness or injury as well as by the family members of a person who has died because of medical malpractice. Michigan’s medical malpractice law requires victims to prove that the at-fault party failed to meet a recognized standard of acceptable professional care and that this failure led to injuries.
