What is Catastrophic Medical Malpractice
Catastrophic medical malpractice occurs when the negligent actions of a physician or other medical professional cause death or extremely severe injuries, such as amputation or traumatic brain injury. While every physician-caused injury is regrettable, these tragic consequences are life changing for the patient, as well as the family.
Some Examples of Medical Malpractice that May Lead to a Catastrophic Injury Include:
- A missed or delayed diagnosis
- Failure to provide timely cancer treatment
- Emergency room negligence
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
