What are some examples of medical malpractice?

While incidents of medical malpractice are wide-ranging and far too common, we have listed some examples of ways in which a doctor may have committed actionable medical malpractice.

  • Failing to diagnose a disease;
  • Making an error in anesthesia;
  • Failing to anticipate birth defects when signs are present;
  • Making a mistake during childbirth;
  • Operating on the wrong arm or leg;
  • Using unsanitary medical tools and devices;
  • Leaving medical equipment inside the body being operated on; and
  • Writing the improper prescription/dosage.
