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.

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:
Asphyxia (lack of oxygen to the brain during birth)
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.
Diseases like cancer to spread throughout the body
Symptoms or injuries to worsen
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.
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:
Clostridium difficile or C. diff infections
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
Worsened medical conditions
