When Doctors Make Mistakes

When you walk into a doctor's office with symptoms that are ailing you, it is expected that the doctor will listen attentively, run the appropriate tests, correctly diagnose your condition, and administer the correct prescription. Unfortunately, however, there are number of ways in which a doctor can fail, making them liable for malpractice. Medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of death in America today.

Doctor Liability

Doctors are responsible for providing their patients with the appropriate medical care; however, they sometimes make mistakes. While this is not an exhaustive list of potential errors, here are a few examples when a doctor could be liable for medical malpractice:

  • Working while under the influence of illicit drugs or alcohol
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose
  • Illegible handwriting or incorrect dosage information, causing pharmaceutical errors
  • Misinterpretation of test results
  • General carelessness

Any of these mistakes could result in serious injury, undue pain and suffering, or even wrongful death.
