Each year in the United States over 250,000 deaths in the United States are the result of medical negligence, according to a comprehensive study undertaken by Johns Hopkins University. Hundreds of thousands additional people are injured as a result of medical malpractice, and oftentimes seriously so. The shocking reality is that medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the United States today. Only heart disease and cancer result in more deaths annually.

Most Common Types of Medical Malpractice

There most common types of medical malpractice fall into one of four categories:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Mistakes in prescribing or administering medications
  • Surgical errors
  • Negligence associated with pregnancy or childbirth

Misdiagnosis is the most common type of medical negligence. Of this type of negligence, there are five types of misdiagnosis that most frequently occur:

  • Presence of tumors
  • Heart attack
  • Blood clot
  • Heart disease
  • Infections

Misdiagnosis can have highly negative consequences. When a misdiagnosis occurs, a person either receives no treatment or the wrong treatment. The end result can be a serious medical situation or even death.

Medical malpractice arising from medication unfortunately is very common. This occurs when the wrong medicine or the wrong dosage of a medication is given to a patient. As is the case with misdiagnosis, the administration of medication incorrectly can have serious health consequences and even result in death.

Surgical errors are also commonplace today. The three most common type of surgical errors are:

  • Nerve damage
  • Failure to control bleeding
  • Leaving a foreign body inside a patient

Unfortunately, numerous cases of medical malpractice in the United States involve the performance of the wrong operation. For example, a surgeon operates on an incorrect limb.

Despite great advances made in prenatal care and the delivery of babies, medical malpractice associated with pregnancy and childbirth remains a persistent problem today. A broad spectrum of different types of negligence can occur during a pregnancy and childbirth. This negligence can result in serious injury to a mother, a baby, or both. It can also result in the death of a mother or child as well. Thousands of babies suffer severe permanent injuries and disabilities every year because of medical negligence during pregnancy, during childbirth, or directly after a baby is born.

Who can be Held Responsible for Medical Malpractice?

Obtaining justice for you in a medical practice case requires that all responsible parties be brought to justice. Oftentimes, multiple parties are legally liable or responsible for injuries (or death) stemming from medical malpractice. Examples of people and entities that legally can be held jointly responsible for the results of medical malpractice include physicians, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, hospitals, paramedics, medical clinics, and other medical personnel and organizations. A key to ensuring an injured person obtains appropriate compensation is making sure proper claims are pursued against all responsible parties.
