The fact is, we all need medical professionals for many of our health concerns. Whether it is something as minor as a check up or as major as a surgery, we expect the doctors, nurses and surgeons to perform their jobs well. We count on them to heal us when we’re sick and trust them with our lives on occasion. When something goes wrong and you or a family member is injured as the result of a health care provider’s negligence or recklessness, the results can be life changing.
Medical malpractice is the failure of any medical professional to provide services that meet the standard of care of a reasonable physician, which results in harm done to that patient. This harm can be a temporary or permanent injury that can result in the loss of income and economic stability. In cases of medical malpractice, you have the right to file a lawsuit to gain compensation for the personal injury or injuries inflicted upon you or a family member.
Lawsuits for Oklahoma and Arkansas medical malpractice include:
- Failure to administer anesthesia properly
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
- Failure to treat properly
- Errors in medication
- Birth injury
- Surgical mistakes
- Wrongful death
There are tens of thousands of medical errors a year that lead to thousands of people seriously injured or dead. These injuries include wrong side surgeries where a good organ or gland is removed, but a cancerous one is left in the body, as well as brain and spinal injuries that result in someone needing a lifetime of special care. Medical malpractice lawsuits seek to protect these individuals, and ultimately make our hospitals and clinics safer.
