Doctors and surgeons are human, and that means they make mistakes when treating and operating on patients. But there’s a big difference between a mistake that’s due to human nature and a mistake that’s due to negligence. When doctors and surgeons injure patients because of negligence, they can be held liable for their patients’ damages through medical malpractice claims.
At Ferrer Poirot Feller Daniel, our Dallas medical malpractice lawyers have built claims for patients who were injured through three of the most common types of errors:
- Surgical errors—These errors often result in serious injuries, and they occur when surgeons fail to operate with the care, precision, and preparation that’s required for procedures.
- Prescription errors—These errors can cause patients to become seriously ill, whether it’s because they were prescribed doses too small, too large, or even the wrong medications altogether.
- Diagnosis errors—Treating illnesses requires properly diagnosing them. When doctors fail to properly diagnose patients due to a lack of tests, they can order treatments that are ineffective or even harmful.
Winning medical malpractice claims is notoriously difficult, especially when you go it alone. Doctors, surgeons, and the healthcare facilities they work for are well-protected against medical malpractice claims, and the insurers that cover them rarely pay without a fight.
