Medical malpractice takes tens of thousands of lives each year, not to mention the hundreds of thousands more that are injured but still live. There are several different types of medical mistakes that give rise to such medical malpractice claims, some examples of which are: mismanagement of labor and child delivery practices; dispensing the wrong type or
wrong dose of medicine; blood transfusion errors; the misdiagnosis of life-threatening conditions, such as cancer; surgery performed on the wrong limb or organ; accidents occurring during surgery; mistakes in anesthesia; infections stemming from treatment; birth trauma; preventable suicide; restraint-related injuries; burns, falls and pressure ulcers.
