The Iowa City Medical Malpractice Lawyers
The Hippocratic oath, taken by all physicians, commands them to "do no harm." To victims who are suffering as a result of medical malpractice, it seems that the oath was all but forgotten.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or medical professional fails to adhere to an established standard of care, resulting in harm to a patient. The result of this malpractice or "medical negligence" takes many forms, such as:
- Failure to Diagnose
- Prescription Errors
- Surgical Errors
- Treatment Failure
- Birth Injuries
- Obstetrical Negligence
Lawsuits Involving Hospitals
Medical Devices and Pharmaceutical Companies
Hospital personnel, nurses, and pharmacists are sometimes implicated in medical malpractice cases. However, you should be aware that malfunctioning medical devices and products, as well as prescription drugs, could lead to injury or death as well. In cases involving dangerous drugs, such the recent rash of cases involving the prescription drug Vioxx, and other defective products cases, the manufacturers may be implicated.
In cases involving defective medical devices or dangerous pharmaceuticals, you can find more information by simply following the convenient link to the Product Liability practice page.
