Types of Medical Malpractice
The New York Times, Daily News and Post all report extensively on when surgeons accidentally leave medical equipment inside of their patients. It’s worth noting, though, that there are far more medical mistakes out there that can result in injury. The following is just a short list.
- Birth injuries
- Hospital negligence
- Anesthesia mistakes
- Nursing home negligence
Any of these situations can result in serious injuries or worse. With over 250,000 American deaths every year attributed to these mistakes, it’s easy to recognize that not all medical malpractice claims result from botched surgeries. If you believe you or a loved one was injured due to a medical error, call Fisher Stone today so we can work toward maximum compensation.
Signs of Medical Malpractice
It is important to recognize that not every medical injury constitutes malpractice. If a physician undertook the actions that any other rational medical professional would have, they likely did everything in their power to help.
If you think you’ve been injured due to negligent medical care, though, you shouldn’t have to figure this out on your own. A personal injury attorney can better investigate whether your injury constitutes medical malpractice. Here are a few signs we look at to see if you deserve compensation.
- Treatment is ineffective
- Diagnosis and symptoms don’t match up
- Lab tests were sole factor in diagnosis
- Different diagnoses from separate doctors
- Doctor ignores your concerns
Any of these issues could be a sign that you’re receiving inefficient medical care. Since the statute of limitations for a New York medical malpractice claim is only 30 months, you should contact an attorney as soon as you realize something is wrong.
