Stockbridge attorney Tracy Udunka is an expert in medical errors which are the third leading cause of death in the United States. According to a 2016 study by John Hopkins, medical errors account for 10% of all deaths nationwide. This equates to nearly 250,000 cases every year. In addition, John Hopkins claims that 1 in every 3 people admitted to a hospital will likely experience some sort of medical error. There are several kinds of medical errors and they include:
Surgical Errors: A few common examples of surgical errors include:
- Delayed Surgery
- Surgical Site Infections
- Anesthesia Errors
- Injury to Other Parts of the Body or Nearby Organs
- Nerve Damage

Medical Misdiagnosis: One of the most common causes of medical malpractice claims fall under medical misdiagnosis. Typically when a person goes to a hospital, that person expects to be treated with the medical industry standard of care but unfortunately that person may not receive the treatment necessary to cure an illness or prevent a life threatening condition. This happens when a medical provider inaccurately diagnoses a patient’s current condition such as failing to diagnose a heart attack, stroke, or serious infection.

Birth Injuries: Even though most babies born in Georgia are delivered without a problem, this is not the case for every delivery.

Birth injuries are caused by the negligent behavior of a medical professional during the pregnancy or during delivery. A common birth injury that stems from a medical error is cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy lawsuits require proof that the child’s condition could have been prevented and that the medical staff failed to provide treatment that meets the medical standard of care during the pregnancy or delivery.
