Psychiatrist Malpractice Cases
The most common basis for psychiatrist malpractice lawsuits include:
-Improper or wrong diagnosis
-Failure to conduct a proper suicide assessment
-Failure to take steps to prevent suicide
-Premature discharge from a mental health facility
-Medication mistakes and overmedicating the patient
-Improper relationships, including sexual relationships, with patients
In other situations, a psychiatrists's failure to diagnose another medical condition and failure to refer the patient to the appropriate medical specialist can give rise to a psychiatric malpractice case.
