Under the law, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals have a duty to the patients under their care. If treatment falls below the accepted standard of medical care and that treatment causes injury or death to a patient, they have committed medical negligence and can be subject to liability.
Such instances of medical malpractice include but are not limited to:
- Physician negligence: This can involve a failure to diagnose a particular condition or a failure to adhere to protocols during childbirth.
- Hospital negligence: This can involve a hospital employee’s failure to follow proper medical care standards that results in injury or death to a patient.
- Nursing home errors: This can involve a failure to adequately supervise residents, or a failure to provide adequate dietary or medical treatment.
- Pharmacy errors: This can include filing the wrong prescription for the wrong patient or filing an improper dosage.
At Lloyd & Hogan, we represent Birmingham individuals and their families with medical malpractice claims involving all of these circumstances.
