Birth Injury

Some so-called birth defects are actually traumatic injuries that may have been preventable. A doctor or other caregiver can make an error in judgment or misread test results and the newborn baby becomes an innocent victim. Sometimes, excessive force is used to extract an infant or a Cesarean section is not executed in time to prevent devastating consequences. Birth injuries that may be attributed to medical malpractice include cerebral palsy and Erb's palsy, as well as brain damage, broken bones, and even jaundice.

Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose

For a patient suffering from the effects of a serious, life-threatening condition or disease, time is of the essence. The sooner a doctor can provide an accurate diagnosis of symptoms, the better the chances of managing the progression or curing the disease. Many doctors are lifesavers, but some make careless mistakes that negatively impact the patient. It may be medical malpractice if your doctor made a misdiagnosis that resulted in injury or failed to diagnose a disease that another healthcare professional would reasonably have detected.

The decisions made by administration personnel are an important factor in the smooth operation of a hospital facility.
