Medical Negligence in Organ Failure

The importance of our organs is never more evident than when they begin to shut down. While organ failure can be attributed to disease or infection, sometimes medical negligence is to blame.

  • If a doctor fails to diagnose or misdiagnose a health condition, the delay in treatment can do irreparable damage.
  • A surgeon may cut an organ by mistake during surgery.
  • Organ damage can also occur if a patient is prescribed or administered the wrong medication or drugs.

Medical errors have been cited as the third leading cause of death in America by multiple studies. If you or someone you love has been affected by a health care worker’s careless actions, talk to one of our Dallas medical malpractice attorneys today.

Types of Organ Failure

Organs have unique functions within our bodies. The kidneys remove waste and toxins, our hearts pump blood, the liver both detoxifies us and produces blood-clotting proteins, our brains run the show, and our lungs enable our other organs to get the oxygen they need to function properly. For any one of them to suffer damage or shut down, the consequences are severe and very often fatal.

  • Kidney failure can result from overmedication or even an undiagnosed heart attack. Kidney failure is also called renal failure.
  • Heart failure, or Cardiovascular failure, results when a doctor misdiagnoses a heart attack or stroke.
  • Liver failure may be attributed to the excessive medication.
  • Brain damage can happen in a number of ways, including a surgical error, oxygen deprivation, overmedication.
  • Lung, or respiratory failure, can occur by surgical error or a failure to diagnose.

While each organ has its own job to perform within our bodies, if one is not working correctly or shuts down, the other organs are affected in a domino-like event.
