Medical Malpractice is a widespread problem.
When you or a loved one is sick you go to a doctor and put your life in
his or her hands. In the office you scan the walls for diplomas and
licenses. You take in a beautiful framed needlepoint on the wall that
states, “A Doctor Shall Do No Harm.” You sit back in your chair and
feel a sense of security that you are in good hands.
if you are misdiagnosed or if your physician neglects to order further
tests due to insurance scrutiny, your sense of security should be very
tenuous because the results may very well cause you to be a victim of
medical malpractice. So many cases of medical malpractice are never
reported due to being misinformed or the victim or the victim’s family
is so overwhelmed as a result of the illness or death of the patient.
physician must have medical malpractice insurance. This insurance is to
protect the physician not the patient. Medical Malpractice insurance
costs are on the rise as a result of medical malpractice occurring more
and more frequently. Many of our fine physicians leave their
specialties due to rising costs which once again places you the patient
in further jeopardy of receiving less than optimal care and then being
the victim of medical malpractice.
Medical Malpractice is
the determination that no other reasonable medical professional would
have performed the same actions as your provider. How are you the
patient able to determine whether medical malpractice occurred? The
determination of medical malpractice is the responsibility of a medical
malpractice lawyer. In conjunction with the patient or the patient’s
family medical malpractice can be determined for inappropriate
treatment of a problem, treatment that caused new problems to arise,
diagnosis given too late for treatment to work or if the physician
provided the wrong treatment.
Medical Malpractice can also
occur during surgical procedures. There are so many things that can go
wrong while the patient is under anesthesia. A patient may be given the
wrong dosage of medication. The patient may be allergic to the
medication. The wrong organ may be operated upon. These are all reasons
for filing a suit for medical malpractice. Do not rely on the word of
your doctor for why something went wrong.
