Medical malpractice is a legal term referring to harm done to patients by the actions or inactions of doctors and other medical professionals. The effects of medical malpractice on a patient's life can vary considerably, from relatively minor damages, such as prolonging the symptoms of an illness, to life-altering issues, such as internal organ damage or the amputation of a limb.
However, regardless of the extent to which a patient in Connecticut is affected by medical malpractice, at the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe that all medical professionals who allow their patients to suffer injury unduly should be held accountable for their actions. Fortunately, these victims are often able to file medical malpractice lawsuits that allow them to recover the costs of their damages and get back on their feet.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice
Because there are many steps to the process of treating a patient, from diagnosing the patient to recovery, medical malpractice can occur in a large variety of ways. Some of the most common ways in which innocent patients are subjected to undue harm and suffering by negligent medical professionals, though, include:
- Birth Injuries
- Cancer Misdiagnosis
- Delay in Diagnosis
- Doctor / Personnel Abuse
- Informed Consent
- Injection Errors
- Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
- Surgical Errors
These and other common forms of medical malpractice are not acceptable, and those medical professionals who are responsible for unduly harming patients in these manners should be held accountable for the ensuing repercussions.
