Establishing Liability for Medical Malpractice
Unlike typical personal injury cases, a case involving medical malpractice can become rapidly complex because healthcare staff, practitioners, and providers are held to distinct standards. Proving negligence requires a lawyer who is experienced at establishing that a doctor, nurse, or even an entire healthcare facility did not provide the appropriate “medical standard of care.”
Such level of care is not fixed, but entirely depends on multiple factors and circumstances, including the victim’s health prior to the incident, age, and medical records. Without the advocacy of a reliable lawyer to hold them accountable, health providers often will try to excuse mistakes or cases of neglect by blaming the patient for failure to properly take a prescription or claiming that such a misfortunate event was bound to happen anyways due to a “pre-existing condition.”
Types of Medical Malpractice
There is an entire host of ways that healthcare providers can fail to meet the standards of medical care they are supposed to provide. You can depend on Michael J. Prisco to carefully scrutinize the evidence to demonstrate that these standards have not been met.
Some examples of ways that medical malpractice commonly occurs include:
- Incorrect diagnosis or interpretation of the results of a test
- Failure to notice or diagnose symptoms of an illness

- Giving the wrong dosage or the incorrect drug prescription
- Neglect in taking a patient’s entire medical history
- Performing errors in the emergency room or during surgery
- Giving the wrong amount of anesthesia
- Improperly utilizing medical equipment
- Using products or drugs that are defective or past their expiration
