A medical malpractice case involves injuries arising from the care or treatment rendered by a medical provider. Medical providers include physicians, nurses, hospitals, psychologists, x-ray technicians and a variety of other medical professionals. There are many different kinds of medical malpractice, but some examples are: dispensing the wrong medicine or the wrong dose of medicine; improper reading of x-rays; transfusion errors; the misdiagnosis of a life-threatening condition; surgery on the wrong limb; accidents during surgery; infections related to treatment; birth trauma; preventable suicide; restraint-related injuries; burns, falls and pressure ulcers. If you believe you've been the victim of a medical mistake, you should contact an attorney with experience in medical malpractice to evaluate and handle your case as quickly as possible. There are complicated and stringent statutes of limitations for medical malpractice cases that limit the amount of time an injured individual has to file a lawsuit.
