Medical Errors

Pursue Justice with a Scranton Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Close to 200,000 people die each year in the United States because of medical errors that could have been prevented if only a healthcare professional had not been negligent. When a person is seriously injured or dies due to a medical error, they may be able to file a medical malpractice claim for personal injury or wrongful death. A claim would allow for them to seek damages for medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, pain and suffering and much more.

There are many different types of medical errors that are prevalent throughout the healthcare industry due to medical negligence. Unfortunately, the most common medical errors are failure to diagnose, surgical errors, medication errors and pharmacy errors. A medical error may occur when a doctor prescribes the incorrect type of medicine, amputates the wrong body part, or fails to diagnose cancer.

When Medical Errors Result in Injury

Regardless of the medical mistake made, when a person becomes seriously ill or dies, the doctor, pharmacist, dentist or other healthcare professional must be held legally responsible. At Rogan Law, we provide outstanding legal representation to victims and family members of victims who have suffered because of medical errors.

The following are common reasons why medical errors may occur:

  • Improper documentation
  • Illegible handwriting
  • Medications having similar names
  • Inexperience
  • New medical/surgical procedures
  • Poor communication amongst staff
  • Inadequate nurse-to-patient ratio
  • Complex care
  • Urgent care
  • Inadequate sleep
