Typical Examples of Malpractice
Though this is by no means an exhaustive list of all of the types of malpractice that can occur, here are a few examples:

- Failing to perform necessary tests or treatment
- Misreading tests or radiology studies
- Neglect of patient care
- Medication errors
- Not properly supervising patients leading to injuries
Responsible Parties in Medical Malpractice Claims
For many people, when they hear the term “medical malpractice,” they immediately think of doctors, and many physicians are guilty of malpractice every year. Not every medical mistake constitutes medical malpractice, however. After you consult with us, we will conduct a full investigation of the facts and circumstances in your case and scrutinize the doctor’s actions very carefully to determine if they upheld their duty of care to you. If they did not, we can file a malpractice claim against them.
Doctors are not the only parties who can be liable for medical malpractice. Liability can also extend to other medical team members and the facility where you received your care itself. In some instances, the facility is the one employing the providers who committed malpractice.
At Dansker & Aspromonte, our thorough investigation will identify each and every liable party, which may include:
When it comes to performing medical procedures, making diagnoses, and prescribing medication, the doctor is the one who is the ultimate decision-maker for your care. They are often the first party we scrutinize when investigating your medical malpractice claim.
If we find evidence of malpractice on the part of your physician, we can use that evidence to prove they are liable for your injuries and demand fair and just compensation for your injuries that resulted from their malpractice.
Medical Staff Members
A health care provider does not have to be a doctor to be potentially liable for medical malpractice. If a member of a medical staff acts negligently and causes injury or damages, we can hold them (and the doctor and facility supervising or employing them) liable. We could pursue damages from:
- A nurse
- Physician’s assistant
- Lab technician
If a doctor or medical staff member’s negligence or failure to uphold their duty of care injured you or your loved one, we may be able to take action and recover damages from their employer—typically a hospital, clinic, or medical facility.

What Potentially Recoverable Compensation May Look Like for You
The injuries caused by medical malpractice can lead to serious personal injuries that require extensive additional treatment or surgery that causes substantial pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Besides the pain and suffering, victims also experience devastatingly large medical bills and lost income when their injuries render them unable to work. You should not have to deal with these damages alone.
If the evidence supports that you were the victim of medical malpractice you may be able to recover a settlement or award that includes money for:
Pain and Suffering
You can obtain monetary compensation for your physical and emotional pain and suffering and mental anguish based upon the injuries you actually sustained. You can also recover money for other noneconomic damages such as loss of enjoyment of life. Depending upon the extent of your injuries and treatment that was necessitated by the malpractice, this compensation may be substantial.
In many cases, victims of medical malpractice require additional medical care that results in large medical bills. This care might be provided to fix the mistake the medical professional in question made or to perform the procedure the medical professional in question failed to perform.
Victims often require ongoing medical care if the malpractice led to a worsening of a condition. Medical care for required surgical procedures, emergency care, hospitalization, ambulance transport, prescription medications, and physical therapy can result in large medical debt. Your claim may include payment of all medical expenses necessitated by their malpractice.
If your injuries and required medical treatment kept you out of work or at a reduced capacity so that you can recover or go to doctor’s appointments, we can help you recover compensation for any lost wages you sustain. To determine the wages you have lost, we will work with your employer to prove the full extent of your lost wages.
