Medical Mistakes Leave Lasting Impacts
Medical mistakes are devastating. They can lead to severe injuries, permanent disability, and even death. Most people do not think about medical mistakes until one occurs to someone they know. It is not only doctors and surgeons that make medical errors, but also nurses, pharmacists, dentists, optometrists, and more.
What Types Of Medical Mistakes Occur? ❖ Emergency room malpractice ❖ Failure to diagnose a condition ❖ Birth injuries ❖ Brain injuries ❖ Spinal cord injuries and paralysis ❖ Misdiagnosis ❖ Surgical mistakes ❖ Medication mistakes ❖ Anesthesia errors ❖ Healthcare-acquired infections
What Is Needed To Prove These Cases? Medical malpractice cases require extensive investigation. Generally, your attorney will need to prove that a medical professional had a duty to care for you and that they breached their duty in some way. They will need to show that the medical professional provided less than the adequate standard of care and that their breach of duty caused your injuries.
Are There Time Limits For These Cases? In Texas, the statute of limitations for a medical malpractice case is typically two years from the date the mistake occurred. There are several exceptions to this time limit, so please speak to your medical malpractice attorney about your case.
