Gravel & Shea Personal Injury

Medical Negligence

Although hospitals, doctors, nurses and other health care providers are usually skilled and dedicated, they sometimes make mistakes. Unlike most other mistakes, a medical error can be devastating to patients or their families.

SOME EXAMPLES OF MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE THAT MIGHT LEAD TO A LAWSUIT INCLUDE:

  • Misdiagnosis or failing to diagnose
  • Misreading or ignoring laboratory results
  • Performing an unnecessary surgery
  • Making surgical errors
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Providing poor follow-up
  • Discharging a patient too soon
  • Not paying enough attention to patient history
  • Failing to order proper testing
  • Failing to recognize symptoms

If a health care provider has made a mistake that has caused you injury or has caused the death of a family member, you may have a right under Vermont law to file a medical negligence claim for money damages.
