In a perfect world, doctors and other medical professionals are competent and trustworthy.  We certainly expect that when we put our lives in their hands. But that is not always the case. People receive substandard treatment that can directly result in injuries and even death, and it is not uncommon for one doctor to be sued multiple times for negligence and malpractice.  If you or someone that you love has fallen victim to substandard care, you need to contact a Siben & Siben Long Island medical malpractice lawyers right away.

Medical malpractice can include negligence by a medical professional for the following situations:

  • · failure to properly diagnose a disease or illness
  • · medication errors
  • · errors in the operating room
  • · failure to adequately provide follow-up care
  • · delivery room or prenatal errors
  • · miscalculations involving anesthesia
  • · unnecessary surgery
  • · contracting infections in the hospital
  • · adverse reaction to medication
  • · and other issues that might cause a malpractice suit to be filed

Doctors and physicians are not the only people who can be responsible for medical malpractice.  Nurses, nursing aids, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and others can likewise act in a manner that endangers someone’s health or life.

Keep in mind that a bad outcome from surgery is not the basis of medical malpractice.  In fact, there has to be negligence on the part of the medical professional in order for that determination to be made.  Nonetheless, nearly a quarter of a million deaths each year, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, can be attributed to medical malpractice, which makes it the third leading cause of death in the U.S.
