- Failure to diagnose cardiovascular disease in time.
- Improper analysis or failure to use positive emission tomography scan (PET scan), cardiac imaging studies, EKG tests, stress testing, angiography, CT scan, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), that result in a heart attack or cerebrovascular strokes
- Improper or negligent endotracheal intubation, epidural anesthesia and local anesthesia that result in severe brain damage, paralysis, stroke, nerve damage, and/or death.
- Surgical negligence, such as failure to administer the surgical procedure properly, improper use of anesthetic agents, wrong site surgery, failure to monitor which results in injury and/or death.
- Obstetrician negligence, such as oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery, Cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD) (where babies are too large to pass through the birth canal) which can lead to cerebral palsy, brachial plexus dystocia, Erb’s palsy and other conditions. Injuries to the delivering mother can include infections and anesthetic reactions.
- Misdiagnosis of medical evidence which suggests the presence of cancer of the cervix, breast or other areas, which, if caught earlier, may have been eradicated within the body or at least have given you a better probability of survival, under the doctrine of “loss of chance.”
