Medical errors can result in serious, permanent injury. If a medical mistake has harmed you or a family member, contact Carr & Carr right away.

What are examples of medical errors?

This new story on CNN includes information on:

  • treating the wrong patient
  • tools left inside the body after surgery
  • lost patients
  • fake doctors
  • too long of a wait in the ER
  • air bubbles in a patient’s blood
  • operating on the wrong body part
  • infection
  • mistaken tubes
  • waking up during anesthesia.

Beware that this is not a complete list, and if you have been seriously, permanently injured by a medical error, you should contact a personal injury attorney.  Your injuries may be medical malpractice, which is the failure of a medical professional to provide services that meet the standard of care of a reasonable physician and result in harm to a patient.

If you or a loved one has been severely injured due to medical errors, email the medical malpractice lawyers at Carr & Carr Attorneys.

Also, remember time limits called “statute of limitations” are in effect for filing law suits.  You must file a lawsuit before the applicable time limit expires.  The time limit as well as other regulations may be different in each state, so talk with the medical malpractice lawyers at Carr & Carr to learn what options your family has.
