Common Instances of Medical Malpractice

As you can imagine, there is a wide range of acts that may qualify as medical malpractice or negligence. Just some of the most common acts that we see that may be considered malpractice are as follows:

  • Making critical errors during surgical procedures, such as performing wrong-site surgery or leaving surgical instruments in a patient’s body.
  • Making diagnosis errors, such as diagnosing a patient incorrectly or failing to diagnose them with a disease at all. Among the most common diagnosis errors are those involving failure to diagnose or the misdiagnosis of cancer. Unfortunately, these mistakes are often fatal.
  • Errors made during the administration of anesthesia or while monitoring patients on anesthesia, such as administering not enough anesthesia (resulting in a patient waking up during surgery), too much (resulting in a patient suffering brain damage), or failing to keep a close eye on a patient’s vitals while under anesthesia at all times.
  • Errors made during childbirth, which may result in the child developing cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, or another injury.

How Long Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim in Kentucky?

Typically, in the state of Kentucky, victims of medical malpractice will have one year from the date the act of medical malpractice occurred (or one year from the date the act of malpractice became apparent) to file a medical malpractice claim. This timeframe is known as the statute of limitations.
