Sometimes the patient’s health is challenged by poor attitude of health professionals or health system itself, which can produce a medical malpractice. Here I have made a compilation of the most common medical malpractices which we believe are the most important medical malpractices.
The lack of knowledge or ability of physicians to interpret symptoms and signs of the patient, poor training for any diagnostic or therapeutic intervention cause a wrong diagnosis.
It is excessive confidence of the physician in the banality of the clinical picture of the patient or the perception that major complications cannot occur, and therefore the physician does not take steps to prevent them.
Bad Medical Prescription
When a patient has a disease and is prescribed something that is not for him/her or is directly contraindicated by the patient’s clinical situation can have fatal consequences.
Omission of Patient Information
There is no adequate report about the procedure, risks and alternatives intervention that can have consequences that is high risk before it. The patient must always know and accept all the risks in order to decide if he/she wants to go for the treatment.
Errors in surgery
Many times there are surgery errors which are well outside the medical circumstances, or occur by a pure human error.
Delay in Making a Diagnosis
If health professionals are slow to diagnose a disease, a vital time for proper treatment can be lost which can affect the patient’s survival.
No provision of technical and/or human means for diagnosis and treatment of patient
An example of this is when a person has a heart attack, and there is a call for the ambulance but this never comes or they send you a simple transfer unit, but not a UVI.
Negligence in Childbirth
The ones responsible for this task sometimes have difficulties in meeting delivery which consequently can cause brain damage and broken bones, among many other issues. The lack of experience in childbirth or even a prenatal negligence are the most common causes.
A feasibility study demand for professional responsibility will tell if any of these medical malpractices have really occurred and especially if they can scientifically be proven. In this way, you can know whether it is appropriate or not to carry out any claims.

Although many accident victims will have personal injury, some accidents can cause wrongful death of a loved one. The wrongful death due to an accident is always surprising and can be very traumatic for the surviving family members.
When you know that your loved one would still be alive if it were not for the negligence or fault of another person causes a lot of pain, anxiety and helplessness. Surviving family members may never be compensated for their losses, but financial compensation can relieve any concerns of future.
What is a wrongful death claim?
A wrongful death lawsuit can be done when the negligence of another party causes the death of a person. The wrongful death claims encompass all types of fatal accidents and can even include crimes, labor and medical malpractice. To receive compensation, you must prove that the other party acted negligently and that their negligence directly caused the death of your loved one.
Who can make claim for a wrongful death?
The surviving spouse, children and parents of the deceased can file suit for wrongful death and receive compensation from the responsible party or parties.
Types of Compensation
When a wrongful death occurs, the surviving family members often have to deal with unexpected financial expenses along with pain and emotional suffering. The plaintiffs in cases of wrongful death can seek compensation for damage such as;
- Medical and hospital bills
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of financial support from the deceased, including future earnings
- Loss of parental guidance
- Loss of companionship of a spouse, parent, child or other loved one
- Pain and emotional suffering of survivors
- Compensation for the suffering of the deceased
