Some of the more typical issues of medical malpractice that we see can include such things as misdiagnosis. Perhaps the most frequent example is someone who goes into an emergency room complaining of chest pain of a severe nature, they’re nauseated, and they’re sweating. They are sent home with a diagnosis of indigestion without ruling out a heart attack. Then, unfortunately, many folks can go on to have a fatal heart attack shortly thereafter. That would be one example.
Another is failure to do a Cesarean section delivery in a timely fashion when it would be needed. Then, you can have an injury that occurs both to mom and to the baby.
You can have cases involving failure to make a timely diagnosis or consideration of cancer. Then you have progression that can lead to a much, much worse outcome.
