New Hampshire Medical Malpractice & Negligence

Medical malpractice refers to an act or failure to act that falls short of the accepted standard of care within the medical community, resulting in harm to the patient.

A medical error can be caused by inadequate skills or experience, administrative mistakes in medical records, or general negligence — but patients should not have to suffer at the hands of a trusted health care professional.

Unfortunately, medical malpractice is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Over 250,000 people in the U.S. die each year from preventable medical mistakes, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Recent reports by the Boston Globe found that a cardiac surgeon at Catholic Medical Center in Manchester had one of the worst surgical malpractice records in the United States — but he was allowed to continue practicing until his retirement.

Common Medical Malpractice Claims in NH

Medical malpractice can lead to life-altering injuries, and in severe cases, these mistakes may be fatal. As a result, many medical negligence lawsuits are filed in the state of New Hampshire each year.

If you or a loved one was harmed at the hands of a health care provider, our New Hampshire malpractice lawyers are prepared to help you take action and pursue justice.

Birth Injuries

When medical professionals fail to provide appropriate care before, during, or shortly after delivery, it can result in devastating a birth injury.

Common birth injuries caused by medical malpractice can include:

Mother kissing baby with birth injury

Our New Hampshire birth injury attorneys have decades of experience handling these kinds of cases. We can help you seek justice for your child and your family.

Emergency Room Mistakes

Emergency rooms are often fast-paced, bustling environments. The adrenaline and high stakes associated with a medical emergency may result in mistakes on the part of those working, like:

  • Discharging a patient too early
  • Interpreting test results incorrectly
  • Failing to provide follow-up care when needed

Emergency room errors can have life-altering consequences. Whether it's a misdiagnosis, delayed treatment, or surgical mistake, our legal team has the knowledge and resources to build a strong case on your behalf.

Failure to Diagnose

When healthcare professionals fail to diagnose a medical condition promptly, or they make an incorrect diagnosis, it can lead to significant harm and even death.

Delaying the correct diagnosis for a patient may cause:

  • Certain treatment options to become unavailable
  • Diseases like cancer to spread throughout the body
  • Symptoms or injuries to worsen
  • Life-threatening complications
  • Prolonged suffering

Aneurysms, strokes, and infections are just a few of the medical conditions that are often misdiagnosed. Even if a doctor makes an accurate diagnosis, their actions may be considered negligent if they fail to prescribe adequate or correct medical treatments.

Our New Hampshire failure to diagnose lawyers can help you take legal action and hold the negligent medical professional accountable for their mistakes.

Hospital Infections

Infections acquired during a hospital stay can result from negligence or inadequate infection control practices.

There are strict protocols in place to help hospitals avoid the spread of infections. Regardless of this, 1 in 10 patients admitted to the hospital will get a health care-associated infection (HAI). 

Some common HAIs include:

  • A patient laying in a hospital bed while a doctor stands with a clipboardClostridium difficile or C. diff infections
  • Gastrointestinal conditions
  • Pneumonia
  • Sepsis or bloodstream infections
  • Surgical site infections
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI) from the use of catheters

Prescription Drug Errors

Prescription drug errors occur when a medical professional fails to accurately prescribe, administer, or monitor medication.

If a doctor prescribes the wrong medication or the correct medication in the wrong dosage, patients may suffer severe harm.

Prescription drug errors can lead to various health consequences, including: 

  • Adverse drug reactions
  • Drug dependence or substance abuse
  • Prolonged recovery
  • Worsened medical conditions
  • Death

Surgical Errors

Surgeons often work extremely long hours, and they may sometimes make careless errors that can impact the rest of a patient’s life.

Examples of common surgical errors include:

  • Damage to internal organs
  • Improper management of post-operative complications
  • Plastic surgery mistakes
  • Surgical tools left inside the body
  • Wrong-patient surgery
  • Wrong-site surgery (like removing the left lung when cancer was in the right lung instead)

Surgical errors can lead to serious complications and long-term consequences. Our team has the experience necessary to navigate complex surgical malpractice cases and fight for justice on your behalf.
