Minnesota Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical malpractice occurs more than it should. This act is the result of neglect when performing a medical procedure, prescribing a medication, or simply performing an exam. Nationally, over 225,000 deaths occur due to medical malpractice. If death does not occur, the injuries become quite devastating.
Here are some examples of medical malpractice that a Minnesota medical malpractice lawyer has seen:
- Deaths due to unnecessary surgery
- Deaths due to medication errors in hospitals and doctor’s offices
- Deaths due to infections acquired in hospitals
- Deaths due to errors in a medical environment
- Deaths due to the negative effects of drugs
Injuries have occurred because of the above events and have resulted in lifelong disability.
Ways Surgical Error Occurs
There are other ways in which medical malpractice occurs and a St. Paul medical malpractice attorney can help with these cases:
- Failure to diagnose a disease
- Performing a procedure without the consent of the patient
- A surgical or anesthesia error during an operational procedure
- A disease that has not been treated properly
- Prescription drug or medical device misuse
When making a claim against one of these errors, you are making a different type of personal injury claim. The principles are all the same. However, a win is only going to occur if you are able to prove negligence in your case. And it is important to note that a bad surgical outcome is not always due to medical malpractice. Procedures come with a certain degree of risk.
In order to prove negligence, it must be proven that the outcome was not a foreseeable complication. Foreseeable complications are complications that patients are warned about before the procedure is performed so that the risks can be assessed. In order to prove negligence, another doctor will need to testify regarding the other doctor’s negligence. They will be asked a series of questions about the procedure and if, in fact, the error that occurred was a negligent act. You must also be able to prove that your injury was really due to the negligence of the doctor.
A medical malpractice lawyer in Minnesota will investigate your claim. You will need to gather all of your medical records. Both your attorney and a medical professional will review these records. Once this review is completed, the medical professional who reviewed your records must testify under oath that the doctor or hospital who treated you failed to meet the required standard of care and that this failure led to your injury.
