Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers handle cases involving injuries resulting from medical errors at urgent care clinics. Many times, patients seek treatment at urgent care clinics because they become ill or injured "after hours" or because they are much closer to their home than a hospital emergency room.
Often, the doctors at these clinics are not trained in emergency medicine and do not have the same medical expertise as a board certified emergency room physician. This can lead to errors in diagnosis and treatment of a patient which can lead to significant injuries and even death.
A patient who suffers injuries from a preventable medical error at an urgent care clinic may have a good case for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Common Michigan Urgent Care Clinic Errors
Common Urgent Care clinic errors include:
- Failing to diagnose an infection
- Failing to order necessary medical tests
- Failing to order x-rays or other radiology films
- Failing to diagnose appendicitis or bowel obstructions
- Failing to diagnose a concussion
- Failing to consult with a specialist
- Failing to have the patient admitted into a hospital
- Failing to provide proper medication
Frequently, urgent care malpractice cases involve mistakes related to the treatment and diagnosis of medical problems with children and infants. Many physicians working at these clinics simply do not have the necessary training in pediatric medicine and as a result, fail to properly treat childhood illnesses. This can result in permanent injury and harm to a child.
