Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Even though many medical practitioners do not act negligently, causing errors to happen, occasionally dangerous medical mistakes happen, leaving victims with serious injuries or illnesses. While there are many ways in which this can happen, there are certain types of medical malpractice that do occur more commonly.

You should not be held accountable for a medical practitioner’s mistake, but rather they are the ones who should bear the burdens and consequences of their errors.
