Kansas City Medical Malpractice Attorney

Medical Errors and Intentional Fraud

As citizens of the United States we expect our medical treatment, of all things, to be excellent, we expect to be cared for correctly by skilled doctors and nurses. We rarely think that a doctor might make a mistake or that they are deliberately defrauding us for monetary gain. Due to their extensive education, we generally accept that they are above mistakes, and that we can believe that we are being cared for properly. When an incident of misdiagnosis occurs or when a doctor fails to diagnose properly, we generally are unaware of this.

The misdiagnosis can go unnoticed for some time if a nurse does not catch it, the results of a misdiagnosis could involve wrong treatment and/or medication that could be harmful. One of the more serious cases of misdiagnosis is the misdiagnosis of cancer; this can have a serious impact on the victim. A misdiagnosis is an example of medical negligence in medical malpractice. Other serious issues that can result from medical negligence include medication errors, anesthesia errors and surgical errors among many others. Any of these could result in serious injuries or sickness.

Have you been injured due to medical negligence?

When a doctor or nurse is helping a mother through the process of giving birth, there are many issues that can arise that require the intervention of a doctor with various mechanical tools such as forceps. The misuse of these tools can result in birth injuries such as spinal cord damage and brain injuries. These injuries will generally last the child their entire life. While many cases of medical malpractice can result in the bodily injury of a victim, there are some cases where disease can be the outcome. In the case of contaminated instruments, disease and sickness can be passed on to the victim from the contaminated tools.

One other very serious injury that can be caused by negligence is an injury caused by radiation. Acute radiation syndrome is a group of health issues that arise within several months of prolonged exposure to radiation. While many forms of medical malpractice result in injuries ranging in severity, there are some forms of malpractice that can result in the wrongful death of an individual. Wrongful death could occur through dangerous medication that was mistakenly prescribed to a patient, or through a surgical error as well as many other causes.
