Pursuing Damages for Medical Malpractice

By Meyerkord & Meyerkord  Apr. 5, 2011 9:26a

When physicians, surgeons, nurses, dentists and other medical professionals assume responsibility for a patient, they are expected to provide the highest standard of care possible. Although there are many trustworthy and reputable doctors out there, there are a select few that deliver a sub-standard level of care to their patients, and as a result, patients suffer undue harm, injury and death as a result.

Doctors and hospitals are prone to human error, just like anybody else. Even the best doctors in practice, can make a mistake. Unfortunately, when you are dealing with surgical errors that can lead to infection, or the wrong organ being removed, or misdiagnosis of cancer, the effects can be devastating and life-threatening. The last thing someone wants to be is a statistic. If you suspect that you or someone you love has been a victim of medical malpractice, contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney today.

When patients get harmed, or killed as a result of medical malpractice or medical negligence, their only recourse is to sue the health care provider who caused the injuries. In the cases where a family member dies as a result of a medical doctor or other professional, then it is their family members that can file a wrongful death suit against the medical provider.

What kinds of errors fall under medical malpractice or negligence? Medical malpractice includes surgical errors, anesthesia errors, errors inside the emergency room, birth injuries, labor complications, medication errors, misdiagnosis of cancer, hospital negligence and much more.
