When you go to the doctor, the hospital, a lab, or seek the professional assistance of any medical professional, you expect that they will be thorough, thoughtful, and give you the best care possible. What if that does not happen?
Medical providers are required to provide a “standard of care.” This is a level of professional attentiveness and knowledge that is expected for treatment of people in similar situations as yours. Medical malpractice occurs when this standard is breached as a result of negligence on the part of the provider. Types of medical malpractice that have led to people seeking and winning settlements or verdicts against those responsible include:
- Wrong diagnoses
- Doctor errors, especially those involving surgery
- Prescription drug errors
- Nursing home abuse
- Defective drugs and medical devices
When a medical treatment does not result in a positive outcome it is not always a result of medical malpractice. In fact, it is typically not a result of medical malpractice. However, if you believe that you have been the victim of medical malpractice then you should seek legal advice and counsel.
You should also know that the pursuit of a lawsuit alleging medical malpractice is exceedingly lengthy and complicated. It can also be extremely expensive. For these reasons, having legal representation with the resources and experience in this area is a critical part of in obtaining the best possible outcome.
