When you have suffered a serious injury or illness and your medical care has taken numerous twists and turns, it can be difficult to determine whether your healthcare provider’s actions constituted “medical negligence.” While physicians, nurses, dentists and other medical professionals are only human, patients have the right to expect them to render their services to the best of their ability. When a doctor is negligent, it can have life-long consequences for the patients and their loved ones. If you believe your injury is the result of medical malpractice, let us help you pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Medical malpractice is “defined as any act or omission by a physician during treatment of a patient that deviates from accepted norms of practice in the medical community and causes an injury to the patient.” This means that your healthcare provider must provide you with the same care that a reasonable person in the same position would provide. Below are examples of common types of medical practice that can cause a personal injury:
- Surgical errors
- Negligent failure to properly diagnose an illness or injury
- Prescribing or administering improper drugs
- Neglecting to appropriately supervise a patient under anesthesia
- Breach of doctor-patient confidentiality
- Mislabeling on a prescription bottle
- Errors on a patient’s chart
- Failing to obtain informed consent
- Unauthorized treatment
Understanding when medical negligence has occurred can be difficult, so let us review your individual circumstances and help you understand if you have the right to recoup your damages suffered. We believe that filing medical malpractice lawsuits not only compensates the victim for his or her injuries, but it also helps prevent future errors and serves to make our healthcare services safer.
