What Are Medical Errors?

Medical errors occur when a medical professional (such as a doctor, surgeon, or nurse) fail to properly perform their responsibilities. These types of errors are often the basis of a medical negligence or medical malpractice claim.

Medical errors can have serious and even deadly consequences. A Doylestown medical error lawyer at Drake, Hileman & Davis, PC can review any harm that you may have suffered due to a medical error and explain your rights and options under the law.

Common Medical Errors

Some types of medical errors are more serious or more common than others. Medical errors of all types and sizes occur every day in medical facilities around the country. These medical errors are often preventable and if you or a loved one has been injured due to a medical error we can help.

Common medical errors include:

  • Recordkeeping. Medical professionals have a responsibility to keep their patient’s information current and accurate.
  • Diagnosis. Failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing a serious illness or injury can result in significant harm to the patient. These types of medical errors are often difficult to identify and you may need the support of legal and medical professionals.
  • Treatment. Medical errors can occur before, during and after a medical procedure. You should be compensated for your injury, regardless of when the medical error occurred that caused your injury.

Seek out the aid of another competent medical professional if you believe that a medical error has occurred causing you injury. Getting yourself properly treated is most important. Call the office of Drake, Hileman & Davis, PC to discuss your injuries with a Doylestown medical error attorney today.

Should I Hire A Lawyer?

The decision to hire a lawyer is a serious one. Some things to keep in mind are:

  • Pursuing a legal claim can be extremely complicated and the legal system is often confusing.
  • The medical professional (and the medical faciality) will have legal representation. It is often very difficult for those without formal legal training to represent themselves against a team of sophisticated lawyers.
  • The legal process can be stressful and it is often more important that you focus on getting the treatment you need and healing your body.

We can discuss your case and help you make a determination if hiring a lawyer is the best decision for you and your family.
