Performance Errors

Dangerous Mistakes in Performing Procedures and Tests

Each day, doctors and their staff perform numerous complex procedures to treat and diagnose illnesses and injuries. If a patient has a serious injury or illness, his or her life may be at stake with each procedure. That's why doctors have well-defined regulations in place to avoid mistakes that endanger patients unnecessarily.

Some mistakes are honest mistakes. But others are the result of lax oversight or lapses in concentration. This kind of doctor negligence puts our entire society at risk. If you or a loved one suffered harm because of a doctor's performance error, we can help. Call 402-991-2100 or contact our firm online to schedule a free consultation with Watson & Carroll PC LLO.

Mistakes can occur while performing a variety of tasks, whether in surgery, in diagnostic procedures, in treatment or in the administration of medication. We closely examine the facts of each medical negligence claim to search for doctor errors such as:

  • Failure to perform diagnostic procedures with the proper standard of care.
  • Failure to ensure third party agencies properly perform diagnostic procedures.
  • Failure to take precautions to prevent likely complications in treatment.
  • Failure to provide timely treatment or corrective intervention once a disease has been diagnosed.
  • Errors in the administration of anesthesia.
  • Errors during birth causing injury to the child or mother.

In addition, doctors are ultimately responsible for the performance of their staff. If someone whom they supervise makes a serious error, then the doctor may be liable for the damages. This is especially true if the error occurs while the staff member is performing a task that is beyond the scope of his or her qualifications.

Our law office will closely analyze the facts of your case in an attempt to determine if medical malpractice or negligence occurred.
