Doctors Errors

Even Small Mistakes Can Cause Big Problems

Doctors are highly educated and important members of society. However, they are not infallible. When doctors make mistakes, they can have grave, even fatal consequences. Therefore, accountability for such errors is crucial. At Joel L. Katz, L.L.C., we provide representation to clients in Annapolis and throughout Maryland by attorneys who have over 125 years of combined medical malpractice experience.

Common Physician Errors

It is important to note that in order to establish a claim for medical malpractice, a doctor had to have acted in a negligent manner. Usually this means that he or she did not handle a situation in the way one of their similarly trained and experienced colleagues would have. Certain doctor errors occur more commonly than others. Examples of doctor negligence may include:

Errors are often commonly made during the administration of anesthesia and as a result of injections after surgical procedures. If you or a loved one has suffered harm as the result of a doctor’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation for things like lost wages, pain and suffering and ongoing medical costs.

Evaluating Whether a Claim Exists

Patients put their trust in their doctors to do the right thing. When that trust is breached, it is easy to feel victimized. However, not every mistake or unsatisfactory result constitutes malpractice. In addition, the rules surrounding medical malpractice are complex and are not the same in every state. We work closely with our clients to analyze their situation and decide whether a potential medical malpractice claim exists.
