Types of Medical Malpractice Cases in Texas

Medical malpractice cases run the gamut from minor to major mistakes. But no matter the severity of the mistake, consequences for the patient can be serious. A doctor’s small error can be a patient’s big problem.

Some common types of medical malpractice include:

  • Birth Injuries: Mistakes made by medical professionals during birth may result in permanent disabilities like brain damage or even death.
  • Diagnosing Errors: A misdiagnosis may direct a doctor into prescribing the wrong medications or even recommending completely unnecessary surgeries.
  • Surgical Mistakes: Surgical mistakes could result in leaving foreign objects in patient’s bodies, accidentally cutting vital organs, paralysis, or infections.
  • Emergency Room Mistakes: Failure to take a proper patient history can result in medication reactions.
  • Medication Errors: A doctor’s careless prescription of the wrong medication can cause illness or disability, and can even be fatal.
  • Hospital Negligence: Examples of hospital negligence cases include the use of unsterilized equipment or the administration of expired medications.
