Wichita, Kansas Brain Injury Attorneys: Medical Malpractice Attorneys Against Common Doctor Errors

A study conducted by the Journal of Patient Safety claimed that more than 440,000 people in Wichita, Kansas and across the United States, die each year due to medical malpractice. An even larger number of victims are left with long-term health issues such as brain damage, paralysis, nerve damage, and other injuries that require ongoing medical care. If victims’ otherwise preventable injuries or deaths happen as the result of negligence or action of a physician, they or their loved ones could have a case for medical malpractice.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can occur in many different forms. Here are some of the most common incidents of malpractice our brain injury attorneys have encountered.

  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis – This occurs when a physician fails to correctly diagnose a condition or disease. This can result in a patient receiving the wrong treatment or not receiving the correct treatment, leading to brain injury or death.
  • Birth Injuries – Physician error during pregnancy or childbirth can lead to brain injury or death of the baby and the severe injury or death of the mother. These injuries could be caused by many factors including: failure to identify birth defects, failure to diagnose a medical condition in the mother, waiting too long to perform a C-section, not responding to fetal distress, and improper use of forceps or vacuum during delivery.
  • Medication Errors – This type of medical malpractice involves the physician prescribing the wrong medication or dosage level to a patient. The results can be catastrophic to the health of a victim, up to and including brain injury or death.
  • Anesthesia Errors – During surgery, anesthesiologists have a small margin for error. Death, brain injury, and other injuries can occur due to the following: not checking a patient’s medical history, administering too much anesthesia, using defective equipment, or failing to monitor the vital signs of the patient.
  • Surgery Errors – These errors can result from surgeon negligence, performing the wrong operation, the damage of internal organs, and substandard post-op care. They can cause brain injury, paralysis, loss of limbs, nerve damage, and wrongful death.
