Attorneys in Kentucky see many types of medical malpractice claims. Here are a few:

1. Misdiagnosis

Sometimes, a patient doesn’t show a textbook list of symptoms, and a doctor may misdiagnose the illness. They may then begin a treatment which could be life-threatening.

2. Negligence Affecting Pregnancy and Childbirth

Even in the 21st century, problems can occur during childbirth which can cause threatening conditions for the mother and child. Just a few of the many problems that can occur are Mother’s gestational diabetes,Preeclampsia, and Hemorrhage of the mother during pregnancy or labor. But a patent can only win a malpractice lawsuit if they prove the doctor was negligent.

3. Prescription Drug Error

Prescribing the wrong medication. Administering the wrong amount. The pharmacist giving out the wrong medication.

All problems that can cause a life-threatening issue.

4. Surgical Errors

Once on the operating table, many things can go wrong: leaving foreign objects in the body, performing the wrong surgery, damaging a nerve, and anesthesia-related negligence. All of these, and more, can be life-threatening.
