Legal Help for the Injured

Akron Medical Malpractice Attorneys

According to the American Medical Association, medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, falling just behind heart disease and cancer. Whether you are prescribed the wrong medication or subjected to a surgery gone wrong, the injuries can be life-altering. Fortunately, victims of medical malpractice can take action to seek justice. If you have been harmed due to medical malpractice, you may be able to gain compensation through a personal injury claim.

At KNR, we ask, ‘what can we do?’ so you move on with more.

Types of Medical Malpractice

While many healthcare professionals perform their duties in a safe and admirable manner, many also make errors when they are providing services.

Medical malpractice is a form of misconduct that involves a doctor, nurse, or any other healthcare professional harming a patient through negligence or recklessness.

In the United States, common types of medical malpractice include, but are not limited to:

Misdiagnosis

In many cases, doctors are unsure about a patient’s condition. Rather than run additional tests, they may simply assign a diagnosis. When this happens, you may not receive the care you need. You might also be given treatment that causes serious and unreasonable side effects.

Problems with Medication

You may be given the wrong medication or wrong dosage by a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or another medical professional. This can cause unwanted side effects and further suffering.

Surgical errors

When a doctor or anesthesiologist is inadequately prepared for a surgery, things can go terribly wrong. Organs can be damaged, blood vessels can be severed, and serious complications can arise that could ultimately lead to death.

Pregnancy and child birth

A child is most vulnerable when they are in the womb. Even the slightest mistakes, such as the mother taking unsafe medications, can lead to serious birth defects. Problems can also arise during childbirth in the hospital.

It must also be proven that your injuries directly resulted from the malpractice.
