Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice is a form of negligence involving the failure of a hospital or healthcare professional (a doctor, nurse, medical technician, surgeon, dentist, or other health care provider) to apply an adequate level of care, skill or diligence in the performance of his or her professional's duties.

If an injury results from this neglect, then the lawyers of Umoh Law can bring a Medical Malpractice lawsuit on behalf of the injured patient, against the medical professional responsible for the injury, or the medical institution.

If proven to be legally responsible for your injuries, the medical professional or institution may be required to pay financial compensation for lost wages, medical bills, etc to the victim.

Please note that in evaluating medical malpractice, it is important to remember that the duty of a medical professional is NOT the duty to cure, or even to guarantee a good outcome from treatment. Medical malpractice does not necessarily occur every time medical treatment is not successful. Rather, their duty is to provide good medical care according to acceptable medical standards.

A misdiagnosis can be arrived at even when all proper tests are performed accurately or evaluated by a skilled doctor with the utmost care. A misdiagnosis becomes medical malpractice, however, if the doctor fails to get a medical history, order the appropriate tests, or recognize observable symptoms of the illness.

The most common cases of Medical Malpractice brought against doctors are:

  • improper diagnosis

  • birth injury

  • drug injury

  • cerebral palsy and erb's palsy

  • failure to diagnose cancer

  • medication errors

  • surgical errors such as a slip of the knife severing a nerve during an operation

  • medical instruments, sponges, needles or other foreign objects dropped and left after surgery

  • errors in prenatal diagnostic testing

  • failure to advise of diagnosis

  • lack of informed consent

  • abandonment (failure to attend to a patient)

  • improperly prescribing a drug

  • failing to inform the patient of available treatments

  • continuing a treatment that has been shown to be ineffective

  • below standard treatment or incorrectly performed treatment
