What is the most common type of medical malpractice?
It is a common myth that most forms of medical malpractice involve gross negligent errors during surgery or an invasive procedure. But the majority of medical malpractice suits are actually in the fields of medical misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose. Despite impressive advancements in medical knowledge and technology, diagnosis is still a complex and often difficult process. Unfortunately, when doctors fail to correctly diagnose a patient’s condition, the result can be an incorrect and harmful treatment.
