What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice happens when a doctor, hospital, nurse, or health care professional does not provide care in line with medical standards. When substandard care results in a new injury or worsens the patient’s condition, the doctor is negligent and should be liable for the resulting harm.

Malpractice can happen at any time during the healthcare process, including during intake, diagnosis, surgery, hospitalization, or at any point when managing the patient.

Some examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Birth injuries before, during, or after delivery
  • Emergency room errors, such as delay of treatment, misdiagnosis, or wrongful discharge
  • Surgery errors, like leaving a foreign object in the body or operating while impaired. Wrong-site surgery might also happen when a doctor operates on the wrong body part
  • Hospital infections or sepsis due to a lack of cleanliness or cross-contamination 
  • Anesthesia mistakes that lead to the patient being conscious during their procedure or administering the wrong type of anesthetic 
  • Pharmacist errors that lead to a patient taking the wrong medication or dosage. The patient might have a reaction or overdose. 
  • Discharging a patient from the hospital prematurely, before they achieve stability or receive a diagnosis of their injury
  • Misdiagnosis of an illness or injury that results in preventable progression of the condition
  • Radiology errors when techs misread or report scans and other tests

This is far from an exhaustive list of medical errors that might cause you harm. Anytime you suffer a medical injury, allow TopDog Law to evaluate whether you have a possible malpractice case.

Where Does Medical Malpractice Happen in Michigan?

Research by Johns Hopkins Medicine shows that medical errors lead to over 250,000 deaths annually nationwide. These numbers make it the third leading cause of death in the United States. The American Medical Association reports that surgeons and obstetricians face the highest frequency of lawsuits, while psychiatrists and pediatricians encounter the lowest number.

Here are some notable hospitals where patients might suffer preventable injuries in Michigan:

  • Henry Ford Hospital 
  • University of Michigan Hospitals 
  • St. Joseph Mercy 
  • Beaumont Hospitals 
  • DMC Harper University Hospital 
  • Spectrum Health Campuses
  • Bronson Methodist Hospital 
  • Ascension Providence Hospital 
  • Mercy Health St. Mary’s 

Even top-rated facilities can be the setting for serious medical mistakes. Hospitals, doctors, and insurance companies tend to fight against malpractice claims, as they can be costly and cause damage to reputations. However, our Michigan medical malpractice attorney will fight back harder to get the justice you deserve.

Medical Malpractice Compensation in Michigan

Insurance Company Battles

Doctors and medical facilities have extensive malpractice coverage, though all parties want to avoid liability for malpractice whenever possible. Insurance companies can create many obstacles to fair compensation, including:

  • Challenging the cause of your injury
  • Questioning the severity of your injury
  • Advising you do not need to hire a medical malpractice lawyer
  • Offering a quick settlement before you know the true value of your case
  • Trying to get statements from you that might work against your claim
  • Delaying the process
  • Denying valid claims

When unrepresented claimants deal with insurance companies, they regularly receive much less than they deserve as a settlement. Do not risk leaving critical funds on the table, as this can leave you responsible for your losses well into the future. Instead, allow our legal team from TopDog Law to handle your insurance claim from the very start.

There are shorter time limits to initiate medical malpractice claims, so never wait to consult our attorney in Michigan and discuss your options.
