When a medical professional gives care that falls below the level an average doctor would give under the same circumstances, that professional is likely guilty of medical negligence. If you have been injured by medical negligence, contact the Riverside medical malpractice lawyers at the law firm of Aitken * Aitken * Cohn.

Types of Medical Negligence
Our Riverside medical malpractice lawyers can help with a complete range of medical malpractice lawsuits. Some of the more common mistakes made by healthcare providers include:
- Anesthesia errors – medical negligence involving anesthesia can cause permanent localized numbness, seizures and death. On the other end of the spectrum, failure to properly anesthetize a patient can lead to anesthesia awareness, where a patient is able to fully experience the pain of a surgery, but unable to communicate.
- Surgical errors – surgical errors can include operating on the wrong patient, the wrong body part, or severe infections from surgical objects being left inside the body.
- Misdiagnosis – failure to properly diagnose heart attacks, cancer or infections can cost patients critical time needed for life-saving treatments.
- Medication errors – medication errors can be due to medical negligence on the part of doctors, nurses, or pharmacies. They often include wrong dosages, incorrect medications or improper directions for usage.
