Medical malpractice lawyers in Columbia with a reputation for success
Medical malpractice can come in a variety of different forms, each posing its own set of potential dangers. Your personal injury attorney at Eng & Woods, Attorneys at Law looks into the cause of your injury to determine the type of case that you have and how we can best approach the case in court to come to a quick, positive resolution.
The most common types of medical malpractice cases include:
- Improper diagnosis. When a doctor makes an incorrect diagnosis, you face two major dangers — that you’ll receive treatment for an illness you don’t have, or that you won’t receive treatment for the illness you do have. Such mistakes can pose serious health risks.
- Failure to diagnose. If a doctor fails to diagnose your condition by misinterpreting or not recognizing your symptoms, you will not receive the treatment you need. Your condition could get worse, or you might suffer complications that could have been avoided.
- Medication errors. Medication errors can include being given the wrong drug, the incorrect dosage of a drug or a drug that interacts harmfully with another drug. Medication errors can also include anesthesia errors.
- Surgical errors. Common surgical errors include improper incisions, improper sterilization or leaving surgical equipment inside of the body. These types of errors pose immediate danger to the victim and point toward negligence on the part of the surgeon.
