Examples of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice includes an array of negligent actions by medical professionals, including:
- Failing to monitor patients for signs of distress or other changes in vital signs
- Diagnosing a patient with the wrong disease
- Giving patients too much anesthesia
- Failing to diagnose a patient
- Overprescribing medication
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Misinterpreting blood tests and other laboratory test results
- Using unsanitary surgical tools during surgery
- Waiting to perform a necessary procedure
- Leaving surgical instruments inside patients
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Operating on a patient without their informed consent
These negligent actions can cause severe harm, including birth injuries, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus (MRSA), brain injuries, permanent nerve damage and spinal cord injuries.
If you were harmed by any of these negligent actions, or any other type of negligent actions, you may be a victim of medical malpractice. Medical professionals have a legal obligation to exercise a high level of care and not cause harm to their patients. If they do not meet that obligation, they should be held accountable and the victims should be compensated.

Investigating Your Medical Malpractice Claim
After we review your claim to see if you have a legitimate medical malpractice case, we will go to work investigating your situation to find out when and where medical malpractice occurred.
Our number one priority is to achieve justice for our clients, and that is why our experienced attorneys will leave no stone unturned in their investigation.
We will do a detailed review of your medical records and the records of the care provided by the medical professional in question. We will interview eyewitnesses and talk to medical experts to help reconstruct what happened and find any and every instance of malpractice.
After concluding our investigation, we might be able to negotiate a settlement with the healthcare provider or medical facility. But we will not settle for any amount that we feel is not fair or sufficient given what happened.
Our Bluffton medical malpractice attorneys are prepared to go to trial to seek justice if we cannot negotiate the settlement that you and your family deserves. If we have to go to court, you can rest assured that we have built a rock-solid case and we know how to counter any attempts by the defense to avoid responsibility for malpractice.
