Anesthesia Errors
Anesthesia is a powerful drug that is administered before surgery to eliminate the sensation of pain. Administer too little anesthesia and the patient could begin to feel pain during a procedure, but administer too much anesthesia and the patient could be at risk for long-term injury.

Birth Injuries
Bostwick & Peterson, LLP places a heavy emphasis on this type of case. When obstetricians and supporting physicians fail to perform their required duty of care, brachial plexus injuries, cerebral palsy, clavicle fractures and other injuries could result.

Emergency Room Errors
In an emergency medical situation, you know that immediate action is necessary. Unfortunately, patients who badly need treatment can be left waiting for long periods of time without treatment or an avoidable mix-up could result in lasting consequences for the patient.

Diagnostic Errors
Errors in patient diagnosis are among the most common causes of medical malpractice lawsuits. Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis contribute to approximately 160,000 patient injuries annually.

Infections in Hospitals
When medical instruments and medical facilities are not properly sanitized, infection can easily spread resulting in harmful staph infections and other diseases that could attack a patient's immune system.

Medication Errors
This type of error could be connected with diagnostic errors. If a physician makes an inaccurate diagnosis, they may prescribe a medication that is harmful to the patient. Medication errors can also arise out of pharmaceutical error.

Never Events
There are a total of 28 events on the list of "never events." This term describes medical events that are inexcusable and should never occur. The list includes events such as patient suicide while under medical supervision and foreign object retention after surgery.

Surgical Errors
Wrong site surgery, foreign object retention and accidental incisions are all types of surgical errors that, if not promptly treated, could result in fatality.

Wrongful Death
Ultimately, the most serious types of medical malpractice are those cases that lead to patient fatality. According to some statistics, preventable medical errors are the sixth largest contributing factor to death in the United States.
