Holding Responsible Parties Liable
Healthcare professionals are legally obligated to exercise a reasonable level of care and skill when treating patients. If they fail to provide an appropriate level of care and act in a way that others in a similar situation would have, they may be held liable for any resulting injuries or damages.
Healthcare professionals can include a variety of professionals, such as:
- Nurses assistants
- Specialists such as obstetrics and gynecology
Depending on the circumstances of your situation and where the negligence occurred, it may also be possible to hold the hospital, doctor’s office, walk-in clinic, or other healthcare facility or provider responsible for its role in causing you harm.
Having successfully handled a number of these types of cases, our Savannah medical malpractice lawyers can sift through the evidence in your claim to make sure that any and all liable parties are held accountable for the injuries they caused you.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can occur under any type of medical situation, whether you are visiting your primary care doctor for a checkup or undergoing a major medical procedure.
Some of the most common types of medical malpractice include:
- Anesthesia errors
- Medication errors
- Surgical errors
- Birth injuries
- Incorrectly diagnosing a medical condition
- Failure to diagnose a medical condition, such as cancer
