Kansas Medical Malpractice Attorneys
According to The National Academy of Sciences, almost 100,000 Americans die each year because of the negligence of medical professionals. Medical malpractice involves the negligent actions or inactions at the hands of a medical professional. Medical practitioners include doctors, surgeons, nurses, hospitals, anesthesiologists, and other healthcare professionals. Medical malpractice usually occurs when a medical professional fails to meet the standards and quality service prescribed for medical care.
It’s hard to imagine that you may suffer further damage to your health by visiting a health professional. Nobody goes into a hospital expecting to be misdiagnosed, given the wrong medication, or receive substandard care. Nevertheless, some of these tragic mistakes do happen, and they can have serious consequences for patients and their families.
There are several errors that can result in medical malpractice lawsuits:
- Birth injuries
- Misdiagnosis or improper diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose an existing condition or disease
- Prescription errors
- Medication errors
- Hospital errors (not enough monitoring, neglect, overdose of medication)
- Surgical errors
Some states, including Kansas, have imposed “caps” that limit the maximum amount of money an individual can recover in medical malpractice lawsuits. However, these caps are constantly challenged in court and are often times overturned.
