Common Forms of Medical Malpractice

Have you been a victim of medical malpractice? How about a family member? If so, you are not the only one in this unenviable position. Every year, thousands of people in the United States are injured or die due to a medical error.

While it is easy to believe that medical malpractice lawsuits are common, this is not the case. Entirely too many health care professionals and hospitals “get off the hook” despite making a serious mistake that has harmed the health of another.

As you will see on this page, there are five common forms of medical malpractice including:

  • Failure to diagnose and/or treat a medical condition
  • Medication errors made by a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist
  • Surgical malpractice
  • Birth injuries, including cerebral palsy
  • Paramedic negligence
