Failure to Diagnose Abdominal Injuries
Medical Malpractice Involving Abdominal Injuries
Medical malpractice cases involving abdominal injuries can take several possible forms. A physician may misdiagnose or fail to diagnose an abdominal injury, leading to further complications and suffering. A surgical error during abdominal surgery may result in nerve damage or damage to otherwise healthy tissues and structures, such as the ureters. Untreated abdominal infections can lead to septic shock and eventual death.
