Every Medical Specialty Has Its Share Of Negligent Physicians
Physicians are involved in such a wide range of their clients’ medical lives that there are innumerable areas where medical malpractice can occur. Failures to diagnose and delays in diagnoses of serious conditions are common physician malpractice claims. Others include prescription and medication errors, mistakes in pregnancy resulting in birth injuries, mistakes when administering anesthesia, urgent care and emergency room errors, radiology mistakes and pain medication overdoses.
Negligence occurs in all medical specialties, including obstetrics and gynecology, neurosurgery, pediatrics, radiology, general surgery, anesthesiology, neurology, psychiatry, cardiology, plastic surgery and pharmacology.
Problems arise when doctors fail to communicate, fail to order the right tests, fail to see the patient in a timely manner and fail to take appropriate action.
