Proving Medical Malpractice

In order to be successful in a medical malpractice lawsuit, you have to prove that a health care provider or medical professional was negligent in a specific action or omission regarding your health care. You must also prove that the injury you suffered as a result of the negligence. We work with you to collect the information and evidence necessary to support your medical malpractice claim.

Causes of Medical Malpractice

Doctors, nurses, administrative directors, hospital staff and other healthcare providers have an obligation to provide excellent care to their patients. However, according to a 2013 study by the Journal of Patient Safety, between 210,000 and 440,000 patients each year who enter themselves in a hospital for care suffer some type of avoidable harm which leads to their death.

Our Atlanta personal injury lawyers can handle the following:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to institute proper treatment
  • Failure to order appropriate tests
  • Delay in treatment
  • Dental negligence
  • Hospital negligence
  • Doctor negligence
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Medication errors
  • Pharmacy errors
  • Infections

Representation for Patients Who Have Suffered from Anesthesia Errors

Anesthesia is applied for patients who will be undergoing surgery as well as numerous other medical procedures. It is a highly specialized medical malpractice, one that only a trained anesthesiologist should be overseeing. While medical technology has advanced the practice to great heights, there may still be times when a surgeon, nurse, and even an anesthesiologist makes a critical error that leads to a patient’s suffering.

The Impact of Anesthesia Errors

Anesthesiologists have the duty of recording and maintaining a patient’s vitals and oxygen levels while the patient remains anesthetized. If they fail to adequately monitor this, this critical mistake can have life-threatening consequences for the patient.

These are some of the common types of anesthesia errors:

  • Drug interactions
  • Allergic reactions
  • Using defective medical devices
  • Overdosage or under-dose of anesthesia
  • Incorrect or insufficient labels or warnings
  • Failure to provide instructions to the patient prior to providing anesthesia
  • Delaying the time to deliver anesthesia to the patient

Anesthesia errors can lead to the following conditions:

  • Seizures and strokes
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain or organ damage
  • Cardiovascular collapse
  • Malignant hyperthermia
  • Vein, nerve or artery damage
  • Coma and death

Contact The Weinstein Firm to take matters into your hands and pursue a claim for financial compensation. Victims of medical malpractice or negligence should never have to suffer quietly—especially when in the hands of a medical professional who should know how to treat patients appropriately.
