Types of Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, medical malpractice can take many forms, some involving life-and-death situations. If the attending care providers don’t act accordingly when providing diagnosis or treatment, patients and their families often suffer devastating consequences.

Common types of medical malpractice include:

  • Failure or delay in diagnosis
  • Substandard care of an illness or injury
  • Surgical errors, including unnecessary or wrong-site surgery
  • Prescription medication errors
  • Postoperative infections
  • Mistakes in providing anesthesia

Sometimes circumstances like the ones above can take place in the delivery room, putting mother and baby at risk. Jonathan W. Gathings & Associates has extensive experience taking legal action in birth injury cases where poor care led to serious complications such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, and other life-altering conditions.

Our lawyers are also dedicated to fighting for the rights of nursing home abuse victims throughout Alabama.

Compensation in Medical Malpractice Cases

The amount of damages you and your family could be entitled to will depend on a number of factors. Our Alabama lawyers are proud to have a record of success helping victims of medical malpractice seek the financial security they need through rewards such as:

  • Money for subsequent medical treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term care
  • Lost wages and diminished earning ability
  • Physical disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering

If your loved one sadly didn’t survive his or her injuries, our lawyers can also discuss how the unique Alabama wrongful death law could affect your claim against the parties responsible.
