Medical Mistakes Leave Lasting Impacts

Many people do not realize that medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death, according to researchers at Johns Hopkins. They claim that around 250,000 people lose their lives each year due to these mistakes, but that is only part of the overall detriment of medical errors – millions more are injured and survive these medical mistakes and are left dealing with the consequences.

Most people do not think about medical mistakes until one occurs to someone they know. However, when we consider how many medical professionals the average American encounters in a year, we can see how often these mistakes can happen. It is not only doctors and surgeons that make medical errors, but also nurses, pharmacists, dentists, optometrists, and more.

What Types Of Medical Mistakes Occur?

There are many different ways that a medical professional can make a mistake. This can include the following:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Medication mistakes
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Healthcare-acquired infections
  • Emergency room malpractice
  • Failure to diagnose a condition
  • Birth injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis

Please understand that this is not a complete list of medical mistakes that can occur, and you should speak to a qualified Dallas medical malpractice attorney about the specifics of your case.

What Is Needed To Prove These Cases?

Medical malpractice cases require extensive investigation. Generally, your attorney will need to prove that a medical professional had a duty to care for you and that they breached their duty in some way. They will need to show that the medical professional provided less than the adequate standard of care and that their breach of duty caused your injuries.

Are There Time Limits For These Cases?

In Texas, the statute of limitations for a medical malpractice case is typically two years from the date the mistake occurred. There are several exceptions to this time limit, so please speak to your medical malpractice attorney about your case.
